Network Switcher 1.0

Switch through multiple network profiles via the system tray area with this portable software application, featuring support for proxies
Network Switcher is a Windows utility that you can use to easily switch through multiple network profiles. It comes packed with an intuitive set of options that you can easily figure out.

Portability advantages

Installation is not required, which makes Network Switcher portable. You can extract the program files to any part of the hard disk and just click the executable to run.

There is also the possibility to save the tool to a pen drive or other removable storage unit, in order to run it on any PC with minimum effort and no previous installers.

An important aspect worth taking into account is that the Windows registry and Start menu do not get updated with new entries, so no traces are left behind after the software utility' s removal.

Accessibility via the system tray

At startup, Network Switcher creates an icon in the system tray area. You can get started by configuring settings when it comes to proxy properties, folder name for network connections, and so on.

Customize settings easily

In addition, you can set the tool to run at every system startup until further notice and minimize to the tray, as well as to exit when closing the main window. All you have to do is add as many network profiles as need and switch through them via the tray icon's context menu.

Evaluation and conclusion

The program does not put a strain on computer performance, since it runs on low CPU and RAM. We have not come across any issues throughout our evaluation, since Network Switcher did not hang, crash or pop up error dialogs. All in all, it gets the job done.
