+1 for "User Interface Options" or  "User Interface Preferences"

I was going to respond with only the latter but Anastasia's comment  
convinced me that brevity and ease of rolling off the tongue are  
pretty important too.  I like preferences because it is more personal  
and we want to transform the interface to the user's personal needs.
