Windows 7 God Mode + Extra!



Windows 7 users are known about the OS and its God Mode. If you haven’t heard of it, GodMode is a feature that was revealed by CNet’s Microsoft Correspondent, Ina Fried. GodMode is a folder that brings together a long list of customization settings allowing you to change all your settings from one place. Neat huh? It’s very easy to enable and damn useful if you tweak things around a lot.


Setting up God Mode in Windows 7
God mode is similar to control Panel /Administrative tools, but with much more easy to use options available. Create a new folder and then rename the folder with the following:



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



Thats it! The folder icon will change — double click it to show the GodMode window.


The window shows nearly 50 sections with quick links to configuration options. Strictly speaking, it’s not a God Mode since all the options are available elsewhere. It’s more akin to an “all tasks” list — but you may find it easier than stumbling through Windows numerous screens and panels.


Note: The ‘godmode’ works with both the 32 & 64-bit versions of Windows 7, Vista 32-bit, Windows Server 2008 32-bit should also work. ** However, it is known to crash 64-bit versions of Vista : you may need to boot in safe mode or to the command line to delete the folder. Be warned!
