- TinkerTool is an application that gives you access to additional preference settings Apple has built into Mac OS X. This allows to activate hidden features in the operating system and in some of.
- New in 1.53.f (1.53.f40): Updated ImageJ plugin to version 1.53.f40 (Java 14 necessary!) The main view menubar can now be extended if a plugin uses the main menu of ImageJ.
- TinkerTool helps you access dozens of preferences that affect OS X system and app behavior, so if there are pet peeves of yours — for example, you hate the fact that Help windows are always in the foreground, or you'd really like to change the default fonts used in Safari, you can manage all these things (and much more) using TinkerTool.
Tweaking tools are easy to find for Windows, but there tend to be fewer available for OS X. TinkerTool is a system customisation tool which enables you to tinker with hidden settings to help configure your Mac more to your liking.
While a large number of customisations can be put in place using the Preferences built into OS X, but TinkerTool enables you to delve a little deeper. You are placed in complete control of settings such as font smoothing, and anti-aliasing, as well as controlling the positioning of desktop wallpaper.
You can customise the appearance and functionality of Finder and disable the dashboard if required. Any changes made in the program only affect the current user, so in a multi-user environment, everyone can apply their own preferred settings. It also means that administrator privileges are not required and safeguards are in place that make it possible to roll back settings to their defaults, or the settings that were in use before TinkerTool was installed.
This is a great tweaking tool which is useful in the way it provides easy access to a wide range of built in settings, but also thanks to the fact that it makes it possible to change settings that you would otherwise not be able to.
What's new in 7.0?

TinkerTool is an application that gives you access to additional preference settings Apple has built into macOS. This allows to activate hidden features in the operating system and in some of the applications delivered with the system.
The tool makes sure that preference changes can only affect the current user. You don't need administrative privileges to use the tool. With this design, it is no problem to use TinkerTool in professional networks where users have restricted permissions. The program will never change any component of the operating system, so the integrity of your system is not put at risk, and there will be no negative effect on system updates. Compliance with these security rules is additionally guaranteed by the application sandbox of macOS.
All preference settings changed by TinkerTool can be reset to Apple's defaults, or to the state that existed before using the tool. No dangerous background processes are used for TinkerTool's operation.
TinkerTool is electronically distributed software. You can download the product free of charge.
