How can I change the general preferences in Kies

Last Update Date : Apr 20. 2018

A : You can edit the general Kies application preferences by clicking Tools > Preferences. The settings available on the General tab are:


Run Samsung Kies automatically when a device is connected: Mark this checkbox to set Kies to auto-run

when you connect a Samsung device.


Have the components reside in memory when the operating system starts, so that Kies can run faster:

Mark this checkbox to set Kies components to be loaded when you start your computer. This allows Kies to start

up faster.


Folder location: Select the folder location that Kies will use to store content you add to your library. Click

Change to select a new location.


Automatically send log information of mobile device: Mark this checkbox to allow Kies to send any error

information created when you have problems using Kies while connected to your Samsung device. This can

help Samsung correct problems you encounter using Kies.


Language: Select the language Kies uses.
