Editors' Review

+

As the name suggests, Attribute Changer allows users to quickly and easily change the attributes of files and folders. Its seamless integration into Windows makes it a good choice for users who frequently need to make these types of changes.

Once installed, the program is accessed by right-clicking on the file or folder in question. From there, the program opens, with its functions organized into tabs for folder properties, file properties, reporting, and settings. The program allows users to change the file type (hidden, compressed, read-only, and so on) and adjust date and time stamps. Although the built-in Help file does an adequate job of explaining the program's features, it's definitely not geared toward novices; the program and Help file both assume that users will have some experience with changing attributes and will know the hows and whys of doing so. For example, the Help file warns users "Be careful in changing the System and Hidden attributes. They are used by the Windows operating system to flag special folders." If you don't already know what you're doing, Attribute Changer isn't going to explain it for you. But if you are used to working with attributes, Attribute Changer is an accessible, easy way to quickly make the desired changes.

Attribute Changer is free to try, but there was no indication of whether there are trial limitations. The program installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to intermediate and advanced users.

"Do Not Download from CNET"

December 02, 2014  |  By elcpu

 |  Version: Attribute Changer 7.11

Pros

The program works well and as described but see big problem below.

Cons

Unfortunately while CNET claims that they have checked their downloads for malware they actually do not. This program installed malware from Spigot which greatly slowed my computer and served me a bunch of ads. I had to use Malwarebytes to remove the Spigot junk from the registry. This has happened to me before with downloads from CNET and it is the last time I download from here. CNET should be ashamed of this,

Summary

I will not use CNET again.
