Features that were well implemented in TuneUp Utilities include a novice-friendly user interface. Despite of the highly technical nature of computer performance optimization, the software’s user interface does not intimidate the uninitiated. The software designers decided to implement a clean and easy to read interface by grouping optimization tasks into three – Maintenance, Speed, and Health. When Laptop Magazine said that the software requires minimal user intervention, they referred to the one-click scan and fix button.
As an example, when users want to perform the tasks under the Maintenance group, there is a one click button that repairs problems that impair computer performance. More advanced users can click the Details link to view a checklist of performance hindering problems identified by the software. The user may opt to check or uncheck an item in the list. A more task oriented approach to computer maintenance is also included in the user interface. There are links to Increase Performance, Free up Disk Space, Clean up Windows, Solve Problems, Customize Windows, and Additional Tools, Each task has its own interface that enable the owners to tweak how optimizing performance can be performed.
