Hookmark’s Preferences window contains the following tabs. Some of these tabs are only presented in Hookmark Pro.


  1. General to apply Finder tags to linked files, and do even more.
  2. Shortcuts to set up global keyboard shortcuts for displaying the Hookmark window; and for using Hookmark’s commands without displaying the Hookmark window.

  4. Favorite Apps to choose the app used to open e-mail links (hook://email/ URLs).
