I've used it to change windowing preferences when switching my laptop from being plugged into an external monitor to the classroom podium projector, but I've never tried it across multiple machines or platforms.

In Mac OS X this is not under the File menu; it is under the Stata 11.0 menu, Preferences->Manage Preferences->Save Preferences... or Open Preferences...
