    They are very similar. 'Preferences' usually control the settings of your personal favorites -- things of little consequence -- like color of font, type size, background photo... -- usually personal prefences. The tern 'settings' is much broader and can impact system issues -- ram size, network adapter.... This is how it works in my mind. Of course, developers are free to label things any way they seem fit.
