Quick Config changes network profile, default printer and more in a click

Moving into different network and domain environment is common these days, specially for people who need to visit lot of clients and get in and out of their working area all the time. Though Windows 7 allows you to choose security settings for networks and also the default printer according to that but still there is lot many things like changing IP address, hosts files, routing table, default email client is not supported.

Quick Config is a windows application which fills this missing feature in Windows 7 ( or any earlier version of windows ) which we might see getting into the core of the operating system. I remember this being asked by many in Windows 7 launch party.
