Just tweeted about this, anyone else heard of or used this?  I have XP at work so have t wait until I get home.


God Mode is a simple folder that brings all aspects of Windows 7 control in a single place. It collects all of the Control Panel functions, interface customization, accessibility options, just about every aspect of controlling Windows 7 into a single place.

God Mode is easy to set up too, just do this:

* Create a new folder anywhere.
* Rename the folder by pasting this name exactly as it appears (copy it first):
* GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

That’s it, you now have a folder with the Control Panel icon that has all the controls in one place.

Screen grab: http://tinyurl.com/ydrfg2s

BTW you can use anything you want instead of GodMode eg.:

UltimateControlPanel.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

As for vistam, some are warning that although it works fine in 32-bit versions of Vista, it can cause 64-bit versions of that operating system to crash.




Cheers, Stevo

No, it's not new. There are lots of other GUIDs that will give direct access to some features. It's just that someone gave it a catchy name... and of we go.

It's not secret, and not new. I used to use this with Windows 98 to get My Computer and the Control Panel as expanding items on the start menu.

For Windows 7 users, you can get a brief list of the more common ones by opening Regedit, and navigating to HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\Namespace. Append any of those GUIDs to a folder and you've got an instant special folder anywhere you want.

{26EE0668-A00A-44D7-9371-BEB064C98683} is the control panel GUID for W7 x64.




I finally have fibre!  Had to leave the country to get it though.

As per the OP the catch is for Vista x64, not W7 x64.

Should be an easy way to activate it, like go to the command prompt and type 'IDKFA' or something ;)

You feel like using a BFG with Windows at times ;)

This didn't work when created as a folder directly on my desktop in Win 7, but I tried it again by creating the folder on a subfolder on my C drive and it worked fine.

Thanks!

This was found in Windows Vista as Master Control Panel.

It has also been known to crash Windows Explorer in Windows Vista Ultimate.
