Quick Settings

This is where you can quickly change some settings of the current Preset.

These changes will be immediately applied to the website you're visiting as well as other websites belonging to that Preset.

Remember, these changes are made to a PRESET. So, pay attention to the Preset you are currently using. Click the down-arrow next to the Preset name to see the Preset list and change to another Preset if needed.

Change to a Preset you want to apply the changes in settings.

In the "Apply the preset to":

  • If you choose ONE-OFF, that Preset will be applied to the website once only. After you refresh the page, whatever Preset set as default will be applied to the website instead.

Decide if you want to apply the preset once or permanently.
  • If you choose FIXED, the website will be added to that Preset and will apply all of that Preset's settings from then on.

Once you've understood the little things above, the rest is easy. You can start making some quick changes to the Preset as desired.
