MacPilot 9.1

Enable and disable various types of hidden Mac options.

MacPilot is a tool that gives you quick access to Mac settings which are normally hidden or difficult to find. It provides you with a wide range of Mac options which help you boost up the performance of your system, change the way your default apps behave, manage startup items, and so much more.

All of the available settings are nicely organized into panels. Simply go through the panels of MacPilot, select the option you wish to enable or disable, and the utility will take care of the rest. You might need to enter your administrator credentials for enabling certain Mac settings.

Two things bother me about MacPilot: it occasionally runs slow, especially when switching between its windows, and the fact that it's compatible only with macOS 10.12 or later.

Another aspect you need to consider before buying MacPilot is that it's not suitable for beginner computer users. Configuring some settings the wrong way might cause issues on your Mac.

All in all, MacPilot might prove to be of good use to anyone who wants to get immediate access to Mac default settings that are normally hidden from sight. So, you should give it a try if none of the aforementioned disadvantages mean anything to you.
