The Util module is a grouping of commonly-needed utilities that are simple to code and which everyone wants, but are never actually coded.

Features include the following:

6.x 7.x
System Modules
This utility automatically collapses fieldsets on the admin/build/modules page. This speeds up the enabling or disabling of modules, since only the set of modules you're interested in can be expanded for editing. Why wade through all your modules every single time you go to this page? Collapse them! The settings page has a directory linking modules to packages.

There is also a counter for each fieldset that numbers every module in that group and reports on how many are enabled. Example: Core - optional [9] of [23]
Permissions Fieldset Manager
Similar to the System Modules above, except this encloses the permissions (admin/user/permissions) for each module in a fieldset. Those may either be all collapsed/expanded, or individually.
Module Weight
This utility allows you to change module weights without having to make the change directly in the database. Very helpful for development or modules that require running in specific order. Controlled via main modules admin page.
Admin Page Fieldsets
Similar to the three modules above (but combined)
Log_Clear
Looking at your logs and wishing you could get rid of just "this kind of message?" Too lazy to fire up PHPMyAdmin to do it (isn't that what Util is for). In searching DO, it seems there are lots of others who would like this. See "DbLog Enhancements."
DbLog Enhancements
Implementing #582622: provide hook for dblog_filters now rather than waiting for a version of core to include it. So here is a function that adds a "Clear" button in the "Filter log" field set on the "Recent log" page. Note: This does not show up on the Util page at all.
Logged_in_as
Ever code up a little block to show user id and maybe roles? Well, here it is. Note: This does not show up on the Util page at all; enable the block to see it.
Comment box
Allows you to set the size of the comment box by content type.
Top Buttons
Places copies of the node submission buttons ("Save," "Delete," etc.) buttons above the body field. Note: This does not show up on the Util page at all. The setting is in the content type form; all content types are enabled by default. The 7.x version also allows you to remove the delete button from the node edit page.
Show site error reporting
This is the only function in the base module. It adds a menu item to the "admin>>reports" menu to display the current site error reporting level.
Edit Link
Adds an "edit this post" link to each node in a teaser list. There is a setting on the "base" tab to show the content type as an option.
Related Blog
Adds a block to show blog entries from the author of the currently displayed node.
Node_Add_Order
This little module allows you to change the order of content types on the "Create content" (node/add) menu. You may choose alphabetical, by node count, or last used.
Node Add Order

No Index
This feature adds a meta tag to each page to prevent it from being indexed by search engine robots. Adding a robots header isn't necessarily a sure thing. It's not supported by all search engines and will not guarantee your site will be excluded. Read this post.
Module Quick List
This produces a quick module list. One use is to submit the list with bug reports.
Admin Pages
Lists pages (paths) to be displayed modally (overlay).
