Review: Create a snapshot of your system with EtreCheck for Mac

View and copy system information for sending, using EtreCheck for Mac.

For those who need a cheatsheet when contacting technical support, EtreCheck for Mac quickly creates a list of vital system information. It looks a bit dated, but couldn't be easier to use.

Clicking the downloaded file immediately opens EtreCheck for Mac. There did not appear to be any technical support or user manuals available, but the application's single feature and automatic operation made this unnecessary. The program, itself, is a basic menu with a dated appearance that creates a list of system information. This includes information on the operating system, processor, memory, and log-in items, among many others. The extensive information could then be copied to the clipboard by clicking the only menu button at the window's bottom. This could then be pasted into a separate document or an e-mail for sending. The information loaded into the program quickly and accurately during testing and the copied information matched that in the program when transferred.

This easy-to-use application could be useful to users in need of assistance from the Apple Support Communities. If you're looking for a limited program to quickly list your system information, then EtreCheck for Mac could be a viable choice, despite its lack of additional options.
