The Preferences dialog allows you to change various important settings in your Wolfram product. This dialog has been streamlined with Wolfram Language Version 11.1, thereby removing the Evaluation and Messages tabs while simplifying its Interface tab.

All the settings previously found in these tabs can still be changed in your Wolfram product at a different location. A few settings have moved to the Advanced tab in the Preferences dialog, while the other ones can be modified in the Option Inspector. Please set the scope to Global Preferences in the Option Inspector in order to be able to edit the individual setting.
