Windows 7 GodMode or a simple trick to get a useful Windows 7 folder

By creating a new folder in Windows 7 (On the desktop, within a folder or where ever you prefer it) and renaming it with a special text string at the end, you are able to have a single folder to do everything in your Windows 7 installation.

The trick will also work in Windows Vista, but be warned, that although it works fine in 32-bit versions of Vista, it will cause 64-bit versions of that operating system to crash.

To get to the “GodMode” you need only create a new folder and then rename the folder to the following:

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

You can use whatever name you want instead of “GodMode” you also could use “Widgets” or “Secret Tools” etc.

Once that is done, the folder’s icon will change to resemble a control panel and will contain dozens of control options. It is a handy way to get to all kinds of controls.

It is even possible to create separate topic folders:
