My computer does not have the swing.properties. How to make a swing.properties file and with what software?

Ok, so I made it with my text editor and wrote this:
swing.defaultlaf=javax.swing.plaf.nimbus.NimbusLookAndFeel
expecting Nimbus. I still get Metal. Why?

another way to specify the current L&F is to use the swing.properties file to set the swing.defaultlaf property. This file, which you may need to create, is located in the lib directory of Sun's Java release (other vendors of Java may use a different location). For example, if you're using the Java interpreter in javaHomeDirectory\bin, then the swing.properties file (if it exists) is in javaHomeDirectory\lib
