The settings-menu is rather extensive and offers three different views for different user levels. The items described below are important for standard users. The display can be changed to advanced or expert view by pressing the button between „Save“ and „Cancel“. These views contain settings that for the most part are interesting for developers only.

In Cachebox you will find a short explanation for every item, which can be selected by long clicking on the items.

For a detailed description of each item click on the image.
