Maybe you don't remember what you picked during your first launch of Visual Studio or what you last reset to. Under the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\11.0\Profile key, you'll see the LastResetSettingsFile value. As previously mentioned, the code name for this feature was Profiles, hence the word Profile is used as the key. In the following example, you'll notice how she's using the Visual Basic Settings.


If you haven't reset any settings since launching Visual Studio, this value tells you this is what you picked at first launch.

Happy Programming! =)
