Managing and migrating application preferences on different computers?

What is the most efficient way to manage and migrate my Indesign workspace and other  preferences while working on different computers in the Cloud?

 

My home computer has  Indesign CS6 installed and I’m about to customize my preferences and workspaces in the app. If I use my Cloud subscription at my workplace, how do access those same preferences at my workplace? Do I have to manually transfer my user prefs from my library, or is there some Cloud magic to help me out?

    Even when working with a cloud subscription, the applications, prefs, workspaces, etc are all installed locally on the computer you are using. Copy your prefs and workspaces on a flash drive or CD, or put them in dropbox folder or similar so you can copy them onto the new system.

    Should only show as a single zip file.

    Sorry, no. The cloud doesn't currently interest me.
