Introduction: Windows "God Mode"

About: My name is James Montour, I am an artist specializing in photography, entertainment arts, and web design.

 Not many people know of this sometimes handy, and pretty well-hidden feature of Windows. And that would be the Godmode folder. Which contains pretty much anything to change your computers settings.

This works on Windows 7, and Windows Vista. I haven't tried it with Windows XP yet, but someone should definitely give it a try!

Step 1: What YOU Need to Do

 Okay, this is pretty simple!

Step 1(Pic 1): make a new folder on your desktop, or wherever you prefer.

Step 2(Pic 2): name the new folder... GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
(Just copy and paste that as the name)

Step 3(Pic 3): click and open your new folder!

Step 4(Pic 4): if your did it correctly, after you click the icon, this window should show up.

Step 2: That's It!

 And there you have it! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial!

    Thanks, it makes life sooo much simpler.

    Oh man! I thought it would work on XP cause it worked on my windows 7.I thought that I could blow off everyone's mind.

    WOW! It works on Windows 8.1 too! Thanks a mil!

    I believe it should, I have not tested in on 7 starter

    This works because both vista and win 7 use something called GUID. Search it up. So this isn't really "god mode" it's just a link to control panel

    Does not work on Vista 64. Causes explorer to restart over and over. If you are experiencing this boot to safe mode command prompt. CD to users desktop and remove directory. This is the way... If you have trouble with this (or don’t have another computer) then you can reboot into safe mode command prompt. Then you can change directories to the desktop (cd c:\users\USERNAME\desktop). Then run the following command: rd /s “GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}” Click Y, when asked.

    That's pretty scary actually. How's Aslan?

     Isn't that just a full listing of the control panel?

     Yes, and also no. It has the expanded contents of the Control Panel, as well as the Administrative tools, and a few other things.

    hooray, thats good.

    now i can edit user account control! :) (even if i AM an administrator)

     But in windows vista/7 all the administrative tools are listed very deep into the control panel. Here you can just see all the control panel items in a list format

    why dosent god mode work in the documents folder?
