Configuring Windows Bitcoin Core Wallet for use on Tor

I use Bitcoin Core v0.12.1 (64bit) for Windows as my desktop wallet for transactions on the regular web. I am just getting set up to use Tor. I would like to configure Bitcoin Core for use on Tor as well. When I opened Settings|Options|Network tabs I found a pre-checked marked box labeled “Allow incoming Connections” In addition to that I have checked marked the box labeled “Use Separate SOCKS5 proxy to reach peers via Tor hidden services” ProxyIP: Port:9050.

Is this all that I really need to do? I’ve been reading up on bitcoin.conf and the command line options. It all seems horribly complex. I’m just an average schmo not some power user. I wouldn’t know which options to pick or what values to assign. I would appreciate any thoughts and suggestions on the subject.
