Allow only one instance of wxDev-C++

Create Backup files

If enabled, whenever you save a source file inwx Dev-C++, a backup copy will be saved along with it. This backup will be overwritten on successive saves.

Minimize on run

If enabled, wxDev-C++ will minimize itself when you execute your program from within it (using the `Run' command under `Execute').

Show toolbars in Full-screen

Double-click to open project-manager files
