Windows and God

The title is a bit strange I know.  But this is a nice little hidden gem I felt I needed to share.  I can only confirm under Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 but it might work under Vista and Windows Server 2008, all I can say is give it a go.

You can create this folder anyway, but what you need to do is to create a new folder.  Give it the following name;

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

That is correct, copy and paste it.  You will find that the icon of the folder changes, the folder becomes God-Mode and inside are a whole heap of short-cuts to various management and setting areas of the Windows operating system.  All of these items can be retrieved from within Windows without this.  But since Windows Vista they have been hidden away, possibly for the better as tweaking areas where one doesn’t understand the consequences can cause many problems.
