    You should store user accounts in a database table or file not the web.config as the application restarts each time the web.config is updated and saved.

    I think you could try to use WebConfigurationManager to find the value section of the applicationSettings.

    Then replace it with a new one.

    Please try to use the following code. It works.

                var configFile = WebConfigurationManager.OpenWebConfiguration("~");
                ClientSettingsSection section = (ClientSettingsSection)configFile.SectionGroups["applicationSettings"].Sections[0];
                var value = section.Settings;
                SettingElement settingElement = new SettingElement();
                SettingValueElement settingValueElement = new SettingValueElement();
                XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();
                XmlNodeList nodeList;
                XmlNode root = doc.DocumentElement;
                nodeList = root.SelectNodes("applicationSettings");
                var valuenode = nodeList[0].SelectNodes("ProjectName.Properties.Settings/setting/value")[0];
                var oldValue = valuenode.InnerText;
                valuenode.InnerText = "New Value1";
                settingValueElement.ValueXml = valuenode;
                settingElement.Value = settingValueElement;

    Best Regards,
