From the General tab, you can set your autosave frequency and directory.
You can also edit some number format settings, and options for how to handle missing values. The missing value warning threshold (default: 50%) will determine how many missing values a column can have before its feature type symbol becomes red, indicating that it is a sparse feature. This can be helpful for quickly dropping all sparse features when running the analytics tools in the software.
The default maximum for number of history entries is 50, which can be changed here (note that increasing this number could increase the size of your .vip project file).
Statistics Sorting gives you the option to sort histograms (in the Statistics Panel) by alphetical order of the bins (Legacy) or by frequency of the bins.
Finally, the Reset button at the bottom of this tab will reset all preferences to default, so please use with caution.
