MacPilot 9.0

Get access to various system settings that are normally hidden on your Mac.

There are dozens of useful Mac features that are normally hidden on your computer. Some of them are located in the System Preferences panel, others in various default Mac utilities. So, you might need to waste a bit of time until you get to the system-related option you need. An alternative would be to use MacPilot, a program that immediately gives you access to multiple system settings that are normally hidden on your Mac.

On the main toolbar of the application, you will find some of its built-in tools. Each utility comes with easy-to-configure settings and immediately completes the given tasks.

This application helps you force empty Trash, reveal hidden files on your Mac, alter Time Machine settings, run maintenance scripts, and so much more. A good thing is that you don't need much computer experience in order to use this program on your Mac and complete any of the aforementioned tasks.

In my testing, every built-in tool worked perfectly. However, MacPilot ran a bit slow every time I switched between its screens.

To conclude, I'd say you should give MacPilot a try if you're looking for a simple and quick way to access system-related settings. It's efficient, provides you with an intuitive interface, and comes with an affordable price.
