The Options dialog box allows various aspects of FireDaemon Pro's behaviour to be customised.
Options settings are grouped into the following sub-sections:
Note: The My User preferences can be inherited from All Users or set specifically for the current logged-in user.
Preferences - All Users
The following option settings are available for All Users.
|Check for Updates||If this setting is enabled, FIreDaemon Pro will automatically check for more a recent version of the product on the FireDaemon website.|

The default setting is 30 seconds.
|Summary Delay||When hovering over a service name in the service list, a service summary is displayed in a popup window. The Summary Delay setting controls the time delay before this popup is displayed.|

If Summary Delay is set to zero, the service summary popups will be disabled.

All option settings for My User are identical to those for All Users, described above., with the exception of a single additional option setting:
|Transfer from All Users||This function copies the All Users settings to the current user profile.|
The following Service Control options are available:
