Windows 7 & Vista God mode

Thanks to sheaponline for the link.

Again, this isn't MS Office but it's too good to ignore ...

Given how sensitive some religious people can be, it’s little wonder Microsoft doesn’t want to talk about the Windows 7 and Vista ‘God Mode’. A pity about the name (it certainly wasn’t an official decision rather an unauthorized extra, so blaming Microsoft isn’t really fair).

Getting past the naming, ‘God mode’ can be very useful for finding options in Windows 7 and Vista.

Entering God mode

Make a new folder called:


It can be anywhere – we tried it in the Drive C root folder.

If you do it right, the folder icon will change to the Control Panel icon.

Enter the folder and it shows up a long list of control settings that are normally spread across many locations (Action Center, Admin Tools etc).

According to Cnet it works in Windows 7 32-bit but might crash 64-bit Windows. It worked on several 64-bit machines, we’ve tried … touchwood.

Removing 'God' from 'God mode'

Claude Almer realized that the key number in curly brackets is the important bit - you can name 'God mode' anything you like:

The Prophet Mode - Peace be upon him.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

Lord Vishnu mode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

Yahweh mode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
