Usability/UI Tweak: Better 'Application Activity Control'

Problem(s):
Comodo likes to bury things behind child windows that don’t have to be. Comodo likes to provide the user one and only one route to get to a particular thing - despite many components being intimately related.

Both of these issues are apparent in the Application Activity Control window. To edit the Access Rights or Protection Settings of a particular program, you have to go through an almost useless window. One of the uses of this intermediary window is to apply a Predefined Policy to an application. However, there is no quick way to manage predefined policies from this window.

The look and feel is also anomalous.

Solution:
Redesign the Application Activity Control window to be the definitive window for editing everything about your application’s activity.

Notes:

  • Access Rights and Protect Settings are now immediately accessible via tab.
  • An “Edit More…” button takes you to the Predefined Security Policies window.
  • Access Rights are now alphabetical, aside from the all important “Run as executable.”
  • Buttons and table titles now match the current look and feel.
  • Drop downs for “ask” “allow” “block” instead of pointless radio buttons.

Notes:

  • When “Predefined Policy” is enabled via radio button, the window automatically opens collapsed.
  • Enabling “Custom Policy” automatically expands the window to show Access Rights.
  • A Collapse/Expand toggle to the right allows the user to manually collapse or expand the window.

Notes:

  • When one mode is selected, the other is grayed out for clarity and usability.
