SwizzTool is a handy utility that includes a variety tools that users may find helpful in the course of normal computer use. Although not all of the features are intuitive, overall we found the program to be useful.

SwizzTool's interface is basic and not entirely obvious, at least not in the beginning. The program is accessed by right-clicking on its icon in the System Tray, which novice users may not realize at first. The program's features are accessed with a slide-out menu, and although most are fairly self-explanatory, there's no Help file for users who need assistance. We are still not entirely sure about what some of the features do. Although the program is generally well-organized, we would have liked a little more guidance on its use. The program consists of a memo, hot keys, tasks, alarms, and a clipboard. Some features, like the alarm, are easy to use; the memo and clipboard, on the other hand, aren't so intuitive. We especially liked the tasks feature, which allows users to schedule such activities as opening and closing programs, locking their workstations, and shutting down their computers, among other things. This is the program's stand-out feature, as most of its other functions are available one way or another within other programs that many users have.

SwizzTool is free, and although it comes as a ZIP file, it uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users who would benefit from having these tools in one place, although they should be prepared to spend some time figuring everything out.
