Here you can change the settings of ASAP Utilities.

When you press the "OK" button the changes will be saved, except for the language. If you change the language this is immediately saved.


  • Ask for confirmation before starting certain utilities (recommended)
    You can switch on/off the question that sometimes is asked before running the utility. For example a question such as "Do you want to convert all text in the selected cells to UPPERCASE?".
    By default this option is checked.
  • Enable undo where available (recommended)
    Turn the undo on or off. Sometimes to increase the speed you might want to turn off the undo.
  • Use the F11 key to switch between full screen and normal view.
    Excel does not have a shortcut to switch between full screen and normal view. In most internet browsers you can use the F11 key to do this.
    You can now choose to use the F11 key to switch between full screen mode in Excel with ASAP Utilities. By default Excel uses the F11 key inserts a chart sheet in Excel but you can also do that with the key combination Alt+F1.
  • Show Date Picker Popup when double clicking on a date cell.
  • Enable mouse wheel scrolling for dialog boxes
    By default, Excel does not have the ability for users to scroll with the mouse in dialog boxes created in Excel's Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) programming language.
    (Added per user request. However, due to a bug in certain Excel builds this can sometimes cause those Excel builds to crash with error 35010.)
  • Show the ASAP Utilities menu also in the Add-ins tab ('classic' menu).
    This option is only available in the ribbon of Excel 2007 or later.
  • Show in right-click context menu (recommended)
  • Help improve ASAP Utilities
    Allow ASAP Utilities to report anonymous usage statistics. These usage statistics do not include personal information, such as the data you work with. Usage statistics do include the following information from your computer: Windows version and language, Excel version and language, ASAP Utilities version and language, and the id's of the 10 tools used most often and your anonymized ip address.
    This information helps with the further development of ASAP Utilities and its documentation and translations.
  • Language used in menus and dialogs
    Here you can change the language of ASAP Utilities into one of the available languages.

    Folder settings

    This tab shows you in which folder ASAP Utilities is installed.
  • Folder to store your "Favorites and shortcuts" file.
    Here you can specify the folder where your favorites menu file is stored. If you work on multiple computers it can be useful to store the favorites menu file on a network folder so that it is accessible from both computers.
    If you pick a folder that doesn't have a favorites menu file yet, a file with the default settings will be created.
  • Default path to save a backup.
    Here you can specify where the backups are saved that are created with the "Save file and create backup" utility.
