Save Some Time with GodMode

Tips & Tricks

Undocumented developer settings have been around Windows for some time, but none have quite received the attention GodMode has with the release of Windows 7. GodMode, reported, is the term coined by bloggers, not Microsoft for this undocumented settings feature that allows the Windows 7 user to view a single folder listing personal settings options, rather than use the new Windows 7 Control Panel. One caveat: there are reports of Godmode crashing machines with the 64-bit version of WinVista.

To make a GodMode folder, just create a new folder and name it (without the quotes):”GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}”. The term GodMode can be changed to anything the user desires.

Curious about other undocumented settings features available? A simple internet search will reveal a host of others at your disposal.
