Designed for the Useful File Utilities application, Change Attributes is a plugin that, as the name says, lets you modify the attributes of a file. It is easily built into the program, and it can apply modifications to multiple items at the same time.
After a brief installation procedure, you can access Change Attributes' settings from the Plug-ins menu or by using a keyboard shortcut in Useful File Utilities.
So, you can turn an item's attributes into Archive, Read-Only, Hidden or System. In addition, you can change the date and time for the creation, access and last modification.
But you can also apply enable "Recurse directories" mode to apply all settings to all items, as well as read the total amount of files and directories in that specific location.
The lightweight plugin has not caused us any issues throughout our evaluation, such as making Useful File Utilities to hang, crash or display error notifications. Changes are immediately applied to the files in question. The tool has a good response time and runs on a very low amount of CPU and system memory.
To sum it up, this plugin brings important features to Useful File Utilities, and they can be figured out by users of any level of experience. On the other hand, Change Attributes has not been updated for a very long time.
