You want to make use the hidden setting with which YOU get to decide where you will be zwifting today?
You want easy access to set trainer effect (also called resistance level) before you launch Zwift?
You want to toggle fullscreen mode?
Then zwift-preferences for Windows can help you. If you use macOS take a look at ZwiftPref instead.
zwift-preferences is a script/an app which gives you access to safely modify the
prefs.xml file from which Zwift reads your prefences when Zwift is launched. Notice that if you change
prefs.xml while Zwift is running your changes will be overwritten by Zwift.
By the way, zwift-preferences can be used together with zwift-login.
