+
+ ## Configuration
+ Mycroft configuration consists of 4 possible locations:
+-- `mycroft-core/mycroft/configuration/mycroft.conf`(Defaults)
++- `mycroft-core/mycroft/configuration/mycroft.conf` (Defaults)
+ - [Mycroft Home](https://home.mycroft.ai) (Remote)
+-- `/etc/mycroft/mycroft.conf`(Machine)
+-- `$HOME/.mycroft/mycroft.conf`(User)
++- `/etc/mycroft/mycroft.conf` (Machine)
++- `$XDG_CONFIG_DIR/mycroft/mycroft.conf` (which is by default `$HOME/.config/mycroft/mycroft.conf`) (USER)
+
+ When the configuration loader starts, it looks in these locations in this order, and loads ALL configurations. Keys that exist in multiple configuration files will be overridden by the last file to contain the value. This process results in a minimal amount being written for a specific device and user, without modifying default distribution files.
+
+ ## Using Mycroft Without Home
