I have added a xml as a project resource (the ones that are been added from Project->Project Properties->Resources Tab->AddResource->AddExistingFile-> Select MyResource.xml)

I have been displaying the content of this file as it was a regular XDocument

XDocument _xDoc = XDocument.Parse(MyApp.Properties.Resources.MyResource);

Now if I have added new elements (or remove old ones) from the _xDoc I want to record those changes also in MyResource.xml file.
Normally I will do it with :

public  void  SaveMofifiedDoc(XElement  _new){
 _xDoc.Element(TAG).Add( _new);

I am looking for something like:

public  void  SaveMofifiedDoc(XElement _new) {
 _xDoc.Element(TAG).Add( _new);

I googled and I see this is not that easy , maybe I have to use streams but I didn't saw any example that suits what I want.

Did you mean to SaveAs/Save Xml file in resources directory after modifying Xml from your source code?

Yes I want to save the changes (whathever they are) on Properties.Resources.MyResource . Then next time I have to parse this resource changes made will be there. I want to access to this xml as a project resource and be able to modify it and save changes done.

Project resources are not meant to be modified at runtime and saved back ; because such resources are integrated to the file during compilation.

If you want to modify the xml file at runtime and save the changes, then stick with an xml file of its own, that you will be able to read and write at any time.
