Have you been looking for a way to access all of your control panels in one spot? Want to consolidate your access to Windows options in one folder? Want to just try something cool? You should check out the “God Mode” in Windows 7.

God Mode

Ina Fried over at CNET broke this story just before CES but apparently it did not get a lot of coverage in our circles. Andrew told me told me about it yesterday so I thought I would rehash the basics. A simple Yahoo search brought up 36,200 results but I have never heard of it.

Ina’s original article with a short video can be found at:

I am not sure where the God Mode comes in but I will run with it.


  • Right mouse click in a directory
  • Select New folder
  • Paste: GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C} as the folder name
  • Press Enter

God Mode

The folder changes to a new icon.

God Mode

Double click on the folder/new icon and scroll to see your options.

I guess if you are not a religious person you could replace “God” with your own name or location.

Thank you Andrew for the heads up on this cool Windows 7 feature.
