A New Year Tip – HOWTO enable GODMODE in Win7 and Svr2008r2 !!

Happy New Year to all, lets hope its a great one.  To start the year off, here's a really cool hidden "feature" that works in both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008r2 that im using more and more; 

What is God Mode? This is a secret Windows 7 Feature (If you can call so!!), which provides you an extended control panel to control your machine. 

Here are the Steps to invoke the God Mode:

Create a new folder (right-click and click on “New Folder”). Right-click on the folder and click on rename, copy and paste this: GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

This folder will now be a shortcut to the Windows 7 God Mode. The Godmode allows you to quickly access many Windows 7 functions via a GUI.



 Feedback, as always is welcome 🙂

    Great tip!

    Even better.  Create the folder on a network or USB drive and it looks like you can use this on whichever system (Win7, 2008 R2) you are using at the time 🙂

    Don’t try on normal Windows 2008, it for me it caused Explorer to crash, and I was unable to directly delete it from CMD until I renamed it!
