As I was creating a few properties in the Application settings class in Visual Studio 2008, I noticed a new dropdown as part of the screen. It allows for the changing of the access modifier for the Settings Class, it can now be either internal or Public. Now there is a way to expose these settings externally. By default they are Internal, but I made this one public.
