God Mode for Windows

Here is a useful thing for getting quick access to a whole host of options in one place. This works on Windows Vista  (32/64), Windows 7  and Windows 2008. There are reports is can crash 64-bit machines, but it’s not always the case, and lets face it, you won’t know till you try it…

Step 1.
Create a folder on your Desktop called “God Mode” or anything else you like

Step 2.
Right click on the folder and select Properties

Step 3.
Rename the folder and rename as follows:

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

Step 4.
Click OK

The icon changes from a folder icon to the Control Panel Icon

This new container holds around 260 settings, so it saves hunting around for settings/options

One thing to note, on a server that is locked down by GPO’s or Local Security, a user can still  make this shortcut, but it only shows the settings that the user has been granted access to see. In some cases, dependant on the lockdown, the user will see a setting but will be asked for administrative credentials to actually get into the setting or make/save changes to them.
