Speccy options - General tab

You can change Speccy's settings by clicking View, and then Options from the main Speccy menu.

  • To change the user interface language, select it from the Language drop-down box.
    Speccy can be run in the following languages: Albanian, Armenian, Azerbaijanii (Latin), Belarusian, Bosnian, Bulgarian, Chinese (Simplified), Croatian, Deutsch (German), English, Español (Spanish), Français (French), Georgian, Hebrew, Italiano (Italian), Japanese, Kurdish, Latvian, Macedonian, Magyar (Hungarian), Marathi, Nederlands (Dutch), Polski (Polish), Português (Portuguese), Português do Brasil (Brazilian Portuguese), Russian, Serbian (Cyrillic), Serbian (Latin), Slovak, Slovenian, Suomi (Finnish), Svenska (Swedish), Türkçe (Turkish), Ukrainian, and Vietnamese.
  • You also can specify whether temperature readings are in Metric (C) or Imperial (F); we recommend use of Metric, however, as this is what most specifications for computer parts are in. 

Update section:

To automatically check for updates online, select Inform me for updates to Speccy. You must have an active Internet connection for this option to work.

Advanced section:

  • By default, Speccy's settings are saved in the Registry. If you select the Save all settings to INI file option, they will be saved to the speccy.ini file in the Speccy program directory. You can use this option to copy your Speccy settings to a new computer just by copying the speccy.ini file.
  • The Skip User Account warning option will allow Speccy to bypass the UAC warnings that Windows will commonly prompt you for when a program might modify data on the hard drive. Selected by default.

    NOTE: If these prompts occur when running Speccy even with this option checked, please uncheck it, then restart the computer, and check the option once more to reset it.
