    Win 7 GodMode

    This is short and sweet but real useful and interesting as well. I didn't write this either.

    GodMode is the name given to cheats in video games that provided you with all weapons and access to all areas. As it turns out, Windows 7 has a GodMode cheat as well. It is basically a control panel of sorts which provides you access to all the features in one explorer window. In the Windows 7 control panel, features are grouped together either in categories or control panel item names. Nothing is grouped under anything in GodMode.
    How to access GodMode?

    Method 1:
    1. Create a new folder and name it GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
    2. The icon will be changed automatically to Control Panel’s icon.

    like this

    3. Now open the folder and see the magic of Windows Registry!

    like this

    Method 2

    1. Create a shortcut with following path and set desired icon:
    explorer.exe shell:::{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
    Note: Sometimes it kills explorer.exe using Method 1! probably Windows Vista x64 editions. Therefore I suggest to use Method 2.

    Solution for the Crash:

    To get rid of this issue, Boot into Safe Mode with Command Prompt and delete that folder. For eg. You created a folder GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C} on desktop, So either navigate to Desktop Folder execute the following command:
    RmDir “GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}”
    Or type the absolute path of folder, like-
    RmDir “C:\Users\<User-Name>\Desktop\GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}”
    Applies To:

    • Windows Vista x86 editions
    • Windows Vista x64 editions
    • Windows 7 x86 editions
    • Windows 7 x64 editions

    Windows has lot of GodModes

    It is found that there are lot of GodModes and they differ based on the Strings used in Name the Folder.

    In an e-mail interview, Steven Sinofsky, Windows division president, said several similar undocumented features provide direct access to all kinds of settings, from choosing a location to managing power settings to identifying biometric sensors.

    As with the all-encompassing GodMode uncovered by bloggers, these other settings can be accessed directly by creating a new folder with any name (GodMode or otherwise) and then including a certain text string. Sinofsky noted more than a dozen strings create particular settings folders, in addition to the overarching GodMode folder option.
    For example, the first one could be a folder named “Hungry Hacker.{00C6D95F-329C-409a-81D7-C46C66EA7F33}” (use everything inside quotes–but not the quotes themselves).
    Here’s the list of strings:

    Also you don't need to add "GodMode" into the file name, you can infact type what ever you want as the name, then insert the random "String"

    old news but does come in handy having all the different options in the 1 window.

    P.S:> I have moved this topic from "Other Tutorials" as it's more a Tip 'n Trick type topic.
