Windows 7: Enable God mode (hidden feature)

One of the less known options on Windows 7 is the God Mode feature. Basically, it lets you have every setting and option right in front of you, ready to be used without having to browse among different settings before getting what you are looking for. Here is how to enable it:
  1. Right click on any bank space on your desktop.
  2. Click new from the menu and create a New Folder.
  3. Rename the folder as follow: GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
  4. DO NOT use this trick on Vista 64X. It will cause your Windows to crash! (read comments below)
This simple command will create a special shortcut to the God Mode option letting you access all Windows 7 functions via a handy GUI!
EDIT: GodMode also works on Windows Vista!

Re: Windows 7: Enable God mode (hidden feature)

Just tried this. It works on Windows 7 x64 perfectly.

Not sure how useful this will be, but a neat trick nonetheless.
