Windows 7 God Mode

Windows 7 (and also Windows Vista) has an hidden mode called "God Mode". With a small trick is possible to have access to an "Extended Control Panel" with a lot of functions.

I'm speaking about all the personalisation that Microsoft use for their Operating sistems. So, no filters!

The procedure is simple: just create a new folder on the desktop and rename it in:

GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

At this point a shortcut icon should appears. This icon opens a Grafical Interface for the "God Mode". There is an issue: this trick may not work properly with 64 bit os versions.

Hi, nice tip, what problems could arise with a 64 bit os? It seems working fine on my setup.

Hi. Thanks for your appreciation :) Anyway, it seems to crash, sometimes, when the UI opens.
