Config.json is a file created by Terraria that primarily stores settings that were chosen via Terraria's settings menu.
Config.json resides in one of the following locations by default:

|Features described below may be subject to change or removal in future Terraria updates, and may not function perfectly. Use with caution. It is recommended that you back up your world and player files prior to enabling or using these features.|
In addition to storing the in-game menu settings, config.json allows players to set certain game options that have not yet been added to the menu. In order to set these options, quit Terraria completely, open the config.json file, edit the desired settings, then save the config.json file and start Terraria.
