Plug-ins. Plug-in modules are software programs that add features to Adobe® Illustrator®. A number of special effects plug-ins come with your program and are automatically installed in the Plug-ins folder inside the Illustrator® folder. You can install any commercial plug-in designed for use with Illustrator®. To install a third-party plug-in module, use the installer if one is provided. Otherwise, drag a copy of the module to the Plug-ins folder inside the Illustrator® folder. Then restart Illustrator® for the plug-in to take effect.
Presets. Presets are collections of items and values that are applied to artwork, and that can be saved, loaded, or replaced at any time. Brushes, Keyboard Shortcuts, Scripts or Actions are just examples.
Preferences. The Illustrator® preferences folder manages the commands and panel settings in Illustrator® . When you open Illustrator® , the positioning of panels and commands are stored in the Illustrator® preferences file. If you want to restore the default settings for Illustrator® or change the current settings, delete the Illustrator® preferences. Illustrator® automatically creates a preference file, when you restart Illustrator® and save a file. More info available here ›
