Getting GodMode in Windows 7 or Vista

It is always cool to find tips and tricks you can use. While not a programming trick, the addition of GodMode to Windows Vista or Windows 7 can turn out to help you as a developer.

GodMode isn't really a change in functionality for Windows. Rather, it is the creation of a folder that has a multitude of links that can help you. Like a Control panel, there are a number of productivity links. These provide links to things such as:

  • Action Center (and individual tasks within Action Center)
  • Administrative Tools
  • AutoPlay
  • Backup and Restore
  • Color Management
  • Credential manager
  • Date and Time
  • Default Location
  • Default Programs
  • Desktop Gadgets
  • Device Manager
  • Devices and Printers

...

  • Windows Defender
  • Windows Firewall
  • Windows Update

These are all some of the categorie's that are listed. There are also items listed within each category. This gives you virtually everything important all in one folder on your system.

To create this GodMode folder simple. Create a new folder on your system. Rename the folder to the following:

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

Like magic, the folder icon will change:
