Who wouldn’t like a free utility that gives you extra functions already built-in to your Mac’s OS X but hidden by Apple? That’s what TinkerTool does. It unlocks a laundry list of additional preference settings in OS X, and settings for a number of OS X apps.
TinkerTool gives you access to hidden preferences in nine different categories, which range from Finder to Dock, Desktop to Apps, Safari to Fonts, and iTunes to QuickTime. Each one has a page of simple toggles to add or remove specific features.
Here’s an example of additions to the Mac’s Finder.
There’s a huge list of options in the General settings.
While TinkerTool has specific settings for Safari, iTunes, and QuickTime, there are hidden settings for other applications which can be enabled with a click.
What’s interesting about OS X in general is that Apple provides so many hidden settings but doesn’t make them available to Mac users. TinkerTool unlocks those settings, but nearly as important is the option to click and go back to the default settings, which mitigates the risk involved.

Not bad for free.
