Editors' review

While Mac offers a great operating system, some users may need to switch to Windows or other operating systems for system compatibility or other purposes. With QuickBoot for Mac, users will be able to switch from their Mac OS to another system drive by selecting the drive or partition from the menu bar.

With a simple drag and drop the installation of QuickBoot for Mac went smooth. The program started up well and displayed our drives properly. After launching, the app will run in the background with an icon on top of the menu bar. There is also an option to set it to run automatically every time you turn on your computer. You can select your desired boot drive from the menu bar or from the interface window. Once you've selected the drive/partition the app will require you to type in your password. If you find this annoying, there's a very helpful option to turn on Passwordless Booting, which installs a small helper program that will be set to run as root.

Don't let its simplicity fool you; this app is actually a very useful tool. QuickBoot allows you to boot with another drive or partition--quickly and flawlessly. It's a lifesaver for users who run multiple drives/partitions on their Mac.
