New in 2018.6: Improved settings panel

Over the next couple of months we plan to refresh the entire user interface of Emsisoft Anti-Malware. The current design served us well for the last four years, but in order to stay on top of modern design trends and changed user experience requirements (e.g. touch screens), it is time for us to get a bigger change on the road.

User interface changes typically mean a lot of development work, so we are going to migrate to our new design in stages. Our first step, which you can see in this month’s 2018.6 release, is a completely redesigned and re-organized settings panel.

Instead of top menu tabs that open individual pages with custom designed settings pages, the new version merges all settings on one well-structured panel that is much easier to navigate. We also took the opportunity to question the old sorting and grouping of settings and re-organized all sections to what we believe provides the best work efficiency for you, i.e. we moved the most used features to the top.

See for yourself and don’t hesitate to provide us feedback in the comments below!

Note to Enterprise users: If you have chosen to receive “Delayed” updates in the Update settings for your clients, they will receive the new software version no earlier than 30 days after the regular “Stable” availability.
