Nugget 7 – Windows 7 God Mode!

Windows 7 has changed Control Panel a little, but it’s still difficult to locate all the applets and options that you might need. God Mode, however, while not being particularly godlike, does offer an easier way to access everything you could want to administer on your computer from a single folder.
 
To try this out, create a new folder and rename it to:

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

The first part, “God Mode” will be the folder name, and can be whatever you want: “Super Control Panel”, “Advanced”, “Admin Mode” if you prefer.
The extension, ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C, must be entered exactly as it is here, though, including the curly brackets. When you press [Enter] this part of the name will disappear, and double-clicking the new folder will display shortcuts to functions in the Action Centre, the Network and Sharing Centre, Power options, troubleshooting tools, user accounts and others – more than 200 options in total.
