TinkerTool System

Change advanced OS X settings and more.

Overview

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. 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.

What's new in TinkerTool System

Version 6.93:
  • The security feature that protects critical files has been modernized to respect recent changes in macOS.
  • Added a new workaround and documentation for macOS defects that can cause Time Machine maintenance features to fail if the backup is network-based.
  • Added a feature to detect broken versions of the installer application of macOS Sierra which are not capable of creating installation media. Apple has officially withdrawn any assertions that the Sierra 10.12.6 installation app is capable of performing this operation and TinkerTool System has been updated accordingly.
  • Fixes a problem where the APFS pane is not shown or not updated correctly when attaching a disk containing a volume with future APFS features that is considered invalid by the running operating system.
  • Fixes a problem where items in the table of privacy settings for applications may not have been translated to the user’s preferred language if running macOS Mojave.

Two pieces to test and to use : Tinker Tool, free and very useful in an easy way, for everyone. TinkerTool System a MUST have for all advanced Macusers who are ready to go in deep adjustments and repair functionalities. Price is very low in regard to services you'll get when you're in front of an issue or just want to use some of the special features this application offers... You're Macusers ? How much cost your Mac ? License price is about 15 $.. Service and regular updates are absolute first class. Marcel Bresink, author of TTS is a true Professional. He seems to know MacOS as well as Apple's R&D people. Answers are, most of time, given some hours after your submitted question. No doubt, TTS is one of the top utilities you should have to try and use. NB : I don't own shares from TT, my comment is only due to a 10 years experience.

Don't know why this is listed as free? TinkerTool is free, but TinkerTool System costs $14.

For everyone tempted to buy an OVERPRICED and probably HARMFUL "Mac Cleaner" app (of which two or more new ones seem to appear EACH WEEK), spring for fifteen bucks (less than half of what most of those ripoff "cleaners" cost) buy this OUTSTANDING UTILITY (really a suite of utilities) and READ THE MANUAL before you go HACKING AROUND macOS. This is beautifully engineered and DOCUMENTED software. You will learn a lot about macOS internals, when, why and how you should (and shouldn't) do "cleaning," and a thousand other things about what makes macOS tick. The Emergency Tool, which could SAVE YOUR BACON some day, is itself worth $15. And here's a tip: if you use the free, and also excellent, TinkerTool utility, by the same company, you can pull all of its functions into TinkerTool System. Great software, great vendor, great price. -SB
