God Mode In Windows 7

There's not much that can be done from the standard user desktop of Windows 7 or even an Administrator's desktop. By default, it is a minimal in functionality for configuration options and settings for printers, time zone, file access, etc.. It is a clean interface by design and done to increase simplicity. Most all things needed for customizing, configuration, and support access can be found from the traditional control panel of Windows 7 as with previous operating systems released from Microsoft. However, through control panel won’t allow you to see and easily use all those nested settings included in the main options. Did you know that you can become a God? Well, at least on Windows 7 not in real life. Don't this go to your head.

One of the less known options on Windows 7 is the GodMode feature. Although this may be due to the fact that having administrator access will provide enough access. Basically, a difference from regular administrator access, is that this mode lets you have every setting and option easily accessible and right in front of you, ready to be used for support without having to browse among different settings before getting what you are looking for.

Here is how to enable it:
Right click on any bank space on your desktop.
Click new from the menu and create a New Folder.
Rename the folder as follow: God Mode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

DO NOT use this trick on Vista and Windows 7 64X. It will cause your Windows to crash! (read comments below)

This simple command will create a special shortcut to the God Mode option letting you access all Windows 7 functions via a handy GUI!

God Mode also works on Windows Vista!
