How do I create a installer version of NVDA from a portable version?

Hi! I did check the archives, but didn’t find anything. I am going to have to do a clean install of windows 10 so the installer version I have is going to be erased. I have a portable version of NVDA on  a thumb drive. After the  clean install is finished, I would like to make a installer version from the portable so all my settings and add ons are saved. How do I make a installer version of NVDA from a portable version? Thanks!

I'd just save the NVDA Appdata folder for your user account and copy it over what a fresh install of NVDA puts there.

C:\Users\{your identifier}\Appdata\Roaming\nvda

That's the folder that contains all of your customizations to NVDA whether it be settings, add-ons, etc.

You can also just go, nvda+n, t, i.
This is install NVDA. Which will allow the portable version to be installed.

Check out the NVDA tools menu to create a install copy

Thanks Brian, Rob and Chris for the suggestions. Chris,  I loaded the portable version of NVDA and went to the tools menu and there was a install NVDA option there that isn’t on the installer version of NVDA. That option seems to be the simplest and easiest, so I will be using that option. Thanks
