These are the most frequently used commands that you may launch via toolbar:

What information is displayed in the panel windows? Left panel shows cookie names, typically comprised from a user name and a domain name. Right panel shows a list of cookie parameters. When selecting a parameter from the list an additional information about its values is displayed, such as when the cookie was set, from what domain it was set, when it expires.
Options include manual selection of internet cookies folder location on the hard disk, selection of backup folder and an option to ask a confirmation prior to erasing cookies.

A built in shredder allows you to wipe cookies from your PC with a peace in mind so that no other software would be able to recover data. Three shredding methods are available: Gutmanns, US DoD 5220.22 M or simply overwriting with random data and erasing later.

Additional options include viewing cookie data as plain text in Notepad, and printing the cookies list. It can be accessed by right-clicking on the cookie file name and also via "Edit" menu command.

When the program is minimized it appears in the system tray. You may shred cookies directly from a popup menu, that appears if you right click on the Advanced Cookie Manager icon in the tray.
