A ‘God Mode’ for Windows 7?


Everyday you boot up your Windows 7 and use it as usual, you might have a chance to use new features in the latest operating system. But you will never know Microsoft have set a God Mode secretly in Windows 7 (in Windows Vista as well) which allows you to access all of the operating system’s control panels from within a single folder. (No, it doesn’t protect you from death when you jump down from the rooftop)

So how do you do that in your Windows 7 (both 32 bits and 64 bits), as well as Windows Vista 32 bits (64 bits might be crashed doing this – fix here)? Here’s how:

1)  Create a new folder in C Drive (actually you can create in any place such as desktop etc.)


2) Rename the new folder with GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

Update: I just found out that the GodMode word can be replaced with anything, just the string has to be there after the word.


3) Press Enter. If everything works well, the icon of the folder will changed as below:


4) Double click in it, and you will find tons of control panel’s options available for you to choose, and the best part is you can create shortcut for some of the options that you used frequently.


Try it out, you might realizes how useful it is when everything can be accessed within one folder. Enjoy!
