Windows 7 GodMode

You may have come across news of a hidden feature in Windows 7 that was posted about on Cnet.com called Windows 7 GodMode.  It’s a little know feature of Windows that has been around since Vista, though few were aware of it’s existence until now.

GodMode is a feature that lets users access all of the Windows Control Panel options from a single window. No hidden Control Panel options are exposed,  but all the various options for the different Control Panel applets are shown.

To create your own GodMode folder where you can easily modify your computer settings, try the following:

Create a new folder (right-click and click on “New Folder”). Right-click on the folder and click on rename, copy and paste this: GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

The GodMode section at the front of the string can contain any name you like,  GodMode was chosen for dramatic effect I’m sure.
