God mode on Windows 8

It' s summer, you're bored enough to start reading random newsletters and then you pick up something useful.

  1. Create a folder on your Surface desktop with the name GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
  2. Open The folder for a surprise...


...this incidentally also works on Windows 7.

    Searching essentially requires you to already know what you want to find (or at least how to reference or describe it) – but you're right about this probably having a high gimmick factor and a low comeback factor after the initial surprise.

    It's still cool that this slipped in on Vista and still lives on in Windows 8 🙂

    Godmode worked in Vista too and everyone was all wound up about it but after that I haven't met a single person that actually ever used that feature.

    In Windows 7 and 8 it's so much faster to just use search to find functions.

    Thank you. Handy one
