God mode
« on: January 29, 2010, 12:45:09 PM »
Pasted form another forum.

Hello, heres a little tip i just picked up from the internet and thought id share it with you all.
People have been calling this "God Mode" although its really just a handy control panel type program built into windows vista and windows 7 with alot more options at hand and its very easy to set up.
1) First, on your desktop, create a new folder (using the right mouse button and select new and folder from the menu)
2) rename the folder to this :
God Mode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

and thats it, the icon for the folder will change to a control panel and once you access it you will have loads of handy options to tinker with.
Enjoy :)

quote from "Techspot"

"User reports suggest that it may crash Windows Vista 64-bit, so proceed with caution. For what it's worth, I've successfully used the "feature" on Windows 7 Home Premium and Ultimate 64-bit. "

and from "OS News"

"An important note needs to be made about Windows Vista. While this trick is safe for all versions of Windows 7 (both 32bit and 64bit), the situation for Vista is different. Windows Vista 32bit users can use this trick, but Vista 64bit users can not. It will cause your system to enter an Explorer crash loop."

Its been around for some time.  Windows 7 GodMode : Old wine in new bottle.

The Windows Club Forum:
Create 38 Windows GodModes with GodMode Creator

Ed Bott:

As Lena said, definitely not recommended for Vista 64-bit.  I don't care to use it on Windows 7 64-bit either.
