How can I set Tor to route all of my internet traffic? So, if I want to use any program to connect to a website or send requests to it, is there any way that I can make Tor hide my IP at all times?

This is a near-identical question to this. In the program you're looking to redirect, find the setting for defining a 'proxy', and use IP (or 'localhost) and port 8118.

That being answered, you may not want to. Vidalia includes a browser configured with settings, protocols, along with certain features removed to cover 'holes' in a normal network-application's use.

As @Keltari noted, Tor's article is a good explanation as to why you shouldn't. – Solemnity Jan 21 '13 at 3:11

You really wouldnt want to. Tor is an extremely slow network, designed for viewing web pages anonymously (with lots of caveats). Also, there is no guarantee that your application would keep your anonymity. A perfect example of not running other applications through Tor's network is explained by this article from the developers of Tor.

If you run the Tor Browser then go into your network settings and tell all network activity to go through the Tor proxy then that theoretically should do it.
