  • God Mode in windows 7 !!

    On the net, came across this awesome little hack in win7.
    You create a new folder, then rename it to GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C} and then Voila! the heavens open. The folder's icon changes to a control panel one and inside there is a plethora of tools used to manage and configure the system. Great useful hack.
    The only strange thing i find about it is that MS hasn't documented it and has not comented yet on it either Afaik.
    Apparently it works on the x86 Vista as well.

    Google Godmode windows 7 for more.

    After a bit more digging, It appears that the Godmode name is just a made up one. You could give the folder any name before the dot. Also, all folder view itself was of what was previously known as master control panel in vista.

    Nice trick nonetheless (excluding the sensation).

      Kind of nice for some things E.g grouping of icons via category and getting every thing in one place. Not really a "God Mode" though, don't know why the name seems to have stuck!

        I did this on a Vista machine and now I get an error stating Windows Explorer has stopped working and then it asks me to restart the program and I hit restart and the same error pops up.
        You have any ideas to fix this

          Is that a x64 version?
          Log into vista in Safe mode plus command and use: RD [/S] [/Q] [drive:]path to remove the folder.

                I was able to figure it out goto task manager open a command prompt cd to user cd to desktop rmdir GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
                and yes it was Vista 64
                So to all you out there with Vista 64
                DONT DO GODMODE

                    Good gues, I've got to pick up the pieces now

                    @Randywhite30

                    Which is why I specifically said x86 in the first post.

                          You're all newbies!

                          I can't belive even the news is talking about this.

                          It's called Special Folders, and instructions for setting them up have existed since Windows 95.
