Cool GodMode for Win 7 and Vista

This new 'folder' enables you to do a lot of things from a single place. Pretty cool.

Quote:
A new "feature" in Windows 7 has been revealed, by Ina Fried @ Cnet. Being dubbed "god mode", the "feature" is actually pretty handy for power users.

Although its name suggests perhaps even grander capabilities, Windows enthusiasts are excited over the discovery of a hidden "GodMode" feature that lets users access all of the operating system's control panels from within a single folder.

By creating a new folder in Windows 7 and renaming it with a certain text string at the end, users are able to have a single place to do everything from changing the look of the mouse pointer to making a new hard-drive partition.



The trick is also said to work in Windows Vista, although some are warning that although it works fine in 32-bit versions of Vista, it can cause 64-bit versions of that operating system to crash.

To enter "GodMode," one need only create a new folder and then rename the folder to the following:

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

Once that is done, the folder's icon will change to resemble a control panel and will contain dozens of control options. I'm not sure it's my idea of playing God, but it is a handy way to get to all kinds of controls.

Ohh..when I read Godmode and Windows, I thought Microsoft finally figured out how to keep the end user safe.
