How to Quickly Access System Optimization Tools with Switchblade?
Switchblade itself is portable, so you don’t have to install it. Just download and run, you can run it from USB for example. When you run it you will see the interface which can be seen above.
To run an application you just need to click on one from the Portable Apps section. To install something like CCleaner, select it from the Install Tool section. In the image above we launched the application uninstaller.
Another very useful tool from the Switchblade collection would be the driver backup and restore, in case that you have system problems, you can easily backup and after that restore drivers with Switchblade.
