    Two ideas:

    1. When you have it set up the way you like it, go to console and type \writeconfig autoexec

    2. Look in your home/baseq3 directory, and if an autoexec is present, move/rename/delete it.

    BTW, it's a good reason to get familiar with writing/editing own *.cfg. Quite boring, but payoff can be huge.

    I'd recommend storing your config separately. You'd have an autoexec with just a line like "exec myconfig.cfg". This makes it easy to switch between configs (you could just replace that line (or even bind a key to change it more easily) with "exec differentconfig.cfg". This will also make your config easily portable.

    Also if you use the /write autoexec.cfg command you'll end up with a unsorted wall of cvars. In my experience it's best to start with a good cfg from someone else (or write it from scratch) and change it to your preferences.

    Also in my cfg i have a key bound to exec my config (like "bind <key> exec myconfig.cfg;vid_restart") , so i can reset things easily.

    This post kind of made me chuckle a bit.

    It's almost right out of my cvar guide.
