Windows God Mode

If you are like the thousands of Windows users out there, then you have probably lost your way inside the Control Panel, one time or the other. Here is a quick solution :)

What is GodMode?

GodMode is nothing but a special folder on Windows systems, in which you can find shortcuts to various Control Panel options, and other settings. It brings all your system settings under a single hood.

Will it work for me?

This has been found to work on Windows Vista and later. This means you can enable GodMode on Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8. Unfortunately, 64-bit installations of Windows Vista run into serious trouble if you enable this option - reportedly, Windows Explorer keeps crashing, and it seems you can only rescue your system by booting into Safe Mode, and deleting the folder with the help of the Command Prompt. Whew! Its better you stayed off this one if you are running 64-bit Vista :P

How do I enable it?

1. Go to your Desktop (or any other folder of your choice).

2. Right click and select 'New Folder'.

3. Rename the folder as God Mode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

4. The icon of the folder ought to change now, and look something like the Control Panel icon.

5. You are done! Welcome to GodMode :)

What now?

Just go into the folder by double clicking it, and you will find all the options under the sun, grouped neatly. Be careful though - you are more likely to wreck your system if you meddle with settings that you don't know about.

Will it work on Windows XP?

We have no idea, but we would love for you to try it, and tell us about your results :) But hey, we'll not take responsibility for the smoke coming out of your CPU :P

This creeps the hell out of me! How do I get rid of it!?

There are three ways you can do it:

1. Right click on the GodMode folder and click 'Delete'. Click 'Yes' when asked for confirmation.

2. Click once on the GodMode folder, and press the 'Delete' key.

3. Get hold of a cricket bat, and beat the life out of your computer. "Its time the stupid thing learnt who its been messing with." :P
