Change Windows 7 Network, Security, Display Settings/Profiles

In many cases, we need to make some quick changes to our windows settings, for example, when you move between home and office and you need to change the network connection settings, default printer and such sort of other things a couple of times daily. Quick Config helps in such situations. It can create profiles, each with specific settings and then allows users to quickly change between them.

The working of this tool is very simple, first create one or more configuration profiles and set  the required settings for each profile. Whenever you need to change the settings of your system, simply activate the particular profile. I have created two profiles Home and Office, so now I can activate any one of them alternatively when ever needed.

In order to create a new profile, click the Create New option located under the Profile section, name this new profile, then check and configure the required options.
