Windows 7 interface (and desktop) is rather clean and minimalist. Of course, you can find everything you need in the famous and well-known Control Panel. However this solution won’t allow you to see and easily use all those nested settings included in the main options. Did you know that you can become a God? Well, at least on Windows 7!

One of the less known options on Windows 7 is the God Mode feature. Basically, it lets you have every setting and option right in front of you, ready to be used without having to browse among different settings before getting what you are looking for. Here is how to enable it:

  1. Right click on any bank space on your desktop.
  2. Click new from the menu and create a New Folder.
  3. Rename the folder as follow: GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
  4. DO NOT use this trick on Vista 64X  and Windows 7 64X. It will cause your Windows to crash! (read comments below)

This simple command will create a special shortcut to the God Mode option letting you access all Windows 7 functions via a handy GUI!

EDIT: GodMode also works on Windows Vista!
