Access Settings/Resource in c#

Settings take the following form:
// eg. When the setting is a string
$AppNamespace$.Properties.Settings.Default.$PropertyName$ = "somechange"; 
// see the Settings.Designer.cs file for the namespace
using $SomeNamespace$.Properties$
// eg. When the setting is a string
Settings.Default.$PropertyName$ = "somechange"; 

// to use
myTextBox.Text = Settings.Default.$PropertyName$
Can only save "User Settings" and they do not get saved to the local config file but to: $Drive$:\Documents and Settings\$UserAccount$\Local Settings\Application Data\$ApplicationName$\...

To Access a Resource from a ".resx" file:

var $VariableName$ = Properties.Resources.$ResourceName$
