Microsoft Windows 7 “God Mode”

Here’s a neat Windows 7 trick that’s been doing the rounds on the Internet. It enables “GodMode,” which provides a single place to access all Windows settings without needing to browse options and folders in the Control Panel. Works on Vista too. Some refer to it as an Easter Egg (See below for definition of Easter Egg). But in reality the so-called Windows 7 “God Mode” is a Windows Master Control Panel shortcut that is created by renaming a folder that references a specific GUID (global unique identifier). This renaming of the folder will allows for the creation of a shortcut to a location; in the case of “God Mode” it creates a different kind of control panel view with all Control Panel items, visible and functional, for each applet and tool. An awesome 284 control panel Item’s in the God Mode list. Each item appears in the category location of the tool or feature. Double click any item and watch it launch.

How to Enable Windows 7 GodMode

To use it:

1. Create a new folder.

2. Rename the folder exactly as:


(note that you can change the “GodMode” text, but the following period and code number are essential).

3. The folder icon will change — double click it to show the GodMode window:

This is an Explorer view inside the GodMode Folder; showing 33 of 284 items

To Summarize, GodMode is a folder containing 284 control panel items. Godmode is enable by

creating, then renaming a folder with a name and a specific GUID to show the control panel items.

Easter egg (media)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A virtual Easter egg is an intentional hidden message, in-joke or feature in an object

such as a movie, book, CD, DVD, computer program, web page or video game. The term was coined—according to Warren Robinett—by Atari after they were pointed to the

secret message left by Robinett in the game Adventure. I’ll let you decide if GodMode is an Easter Egg or not. No matter, enjoy the newly found feature.
