  • Show web results in Search: By default, search results will also include results from YouTube. This option allows you to disable showing those results.
  • UI History Clear: This setting determines how long your UI history will be retained before it is reset.  When the Control Center UI is dismissed, pressing the Caavo button before the UI history is cleared will take you back to the previous screen.  After the UI history clears, pressing the button again will open the Control Center Toolbar.
  • UI Timeout: This controls how long the Control Center UI will stay on-screen if there is no activity.
  • Calibrate screen: This will allow you to re-configure the size of Control Center's UI. Click here to learn more.

  • Auto-start playback in all Apps: When enabled, will automatically begin playback of content launched for most apps.
  • Nightly restart on inactivity: This option will tell Control Center to reboot each night if no activity is detected.
  • Power system on when device activity is detected: Control Center can detect when there is activity on the source devices attached to it. By default this is enabled, and Control Center will wake up and turn on your display when activity is detected.
  • Switch to device on System power up: Choose which device you want Control Center to switch to when first starting up. By default it will display the last device you were using.
