Off Topic – but useful none the less – Win 7 Trick

Even though this is not related to SQL Server, I thought I would share it, as we know SQL Server runs on top of a OS – and it is always handy to know how we can configure the OS.



Do you spend precious time trying to find the right place in Windows to adjust a particular setting?   Would a single dialog containing all the settings that you would ever want to change be useful then read on…

This works in both Windows Vista and Windows 7.  Add a new folder to your desktop and name it GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C} – you will now see the icon above on your desktop and a pretty long list of items.  Note: You can replace the “GodMode” with anything… I use “Full Mode Control Panel”.
