“God Mode” in Windows 7

Everybody is talking about the so called Windows 7 "God Mode."

What is it, you ask? Simply create a new folder, call it GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C} and you will have a shortcut to every setting on your computer.


Sounds great right? Only if you are the kind of person that likes to navigate through a list of 255 tasks instead of simply typing in what you need.

There are no new features or settings exposed. Only a list of tasks that can be accomplished within the so simple Control Panel search.

The feature is actually not even called God Mode but All Tasks. The All Tasks feature is simply a shell folder you can access a few different ways. Just type shell:::{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C} in the windows explorer address bar and hit <Enter>.  Alternatively, create a folder and name it anything.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}.

Someone probably named the folder “GodMode” just to make it sound mysterious and intriguing.

BTW, it also works on VISTA 32bit.
