Enable God Mode in Windows

You can enable “God-Mode,” a term devised by the Microsoft development team, which provides a single place to access all Windows settings without needing to browse options and folders in the Control Panel.

To use it:

  1. Create a New Folder
  2. Rename the folder to God-Mode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
  3. Note that you can change the “God-Mode” text, but the following period and code number are essential.
    God-Mode

  4. The folder icon will change — double click it to show the God-Mode window:

GodMode

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.

 

Warning
The trick appears to work on both the 32 and 64-bit versions of Windows 7. Vista 32-bit and Windows Server 2008 32-bit should also work. However, it is known to crash 64-bit versions of Vista — and you may need to boot in safe mode or to the command line to delete the folder.
