Sep 11, 2020 TinkerTool System is a collection of system utility features helping you in performing advanced administration tasks on Apple Macintosh computers. The application makes use of a self-adapting user interface which automatically adjusts to the computer model and to the version of OS X you are running.

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.

To further guarantee that the tool cannot change any part of your installation, but only gets access to your personal preference settings, the program puts itself under the restrictions of Apple's Application Sandbox. TinkerTool is the first application of its kind to use this innovative technology.

When you have defined your preferred set of “pro” preference settings, you can additionally export and import the settings, copying them to another user account or to a different computer. All settings which don't depend on the availability of third-party applications can be transferred.

Because TinkerTool only gives you access to features already built into macOS, its feature set varies greatly between different operating system versions. Please refer to the following table:

TinkerTool System 5 is a collection of system utility features helping you in performing advanced administration tasks on Apple Macintosh computers. The application makes use of a self-adapting user interface which automatically adjusts to the computer model and to the version of OS X you are running. All options available in the current situation are accessible via “panes”, very similar to the techniques you already know from the System Preferences application. The features are controlled via a single window which allows you to use the application as a general toolbox and First Aid assistant.

This includes:
– built-in maintenance features of OS X, usually not visible on the graphical user interface,
– extended file operations, not available in the OS X Finder,
– the possibility to access advanced system settings which are not visible in System Preferences,
– genuine and unique features of TinkerTool System, designed to resolve typical real-world problems of administrators and to fix the effects of certain defects (“bugs”) in the operating system,
– an emergency tool to troubleshoot and repair OS X in cases where the graphical user interface is no longer starting correctly or the user account of the system administrator has been damaged,
– features to protect your privacy, e.g. by reviewing and editing the list of Internet cookies stored for your user account,
– functions to collect advanced information about the hardware, operating system, and applications.

Together with its sister program TinkerTool which is available at no charge, TinkerTool System is a perfect substitute for the following types of system utilities:
– Finder enhancers,
– Cache and font cache cleaners,
– Tools to access hidden preference settings,
– Applications to make objects invisible in the Finder,
– Internet browser privacy protection tools,
– Cookie managers for Safari,
– Tools to remove international language support files,
– Log file browsers,
– Application uninstallers,
– Single User Mode troubleshooting tools,
– Spell-checker dictionary editors,
and many others.
