Windows "God Mode"

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!

    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.

     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.

     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
