Quickly Access Settings and Features with the Windows 7 GodMode

Who wants to navigate through tons of menus and links to find the various settings and cool features in Windows 7? Because it's so different than Windows XP, many users get lost when trying to find settings that used to exist in the Control Pannel.

“GodMode”, 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 may be an easier way for blind and visually impaired users to find what they need more quickly.

To use it:

  1. Create a new folder in a convenient place like the Desktop.
  2. Rename the folder to GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C} (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.

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, you may need to boot in safe mode or to the command line to delete the folder.
