The Best Window 7 Trick to Date – Enter GodMode

February 4, 2012 Leave a comment

If you have Windows 7 and have been playing with it for a while then you might have noticed that most of its control options are somewhat hidden. If you are every glue user then you might not have the needed for a more robust set of controls but if you are a power user or someone who likes to customize the way the operating system works then this is for you.

Even though Redmond has not officially made a comment about how or why this setting came to be is great to know that you are able to access all sorts of settings from one place, think of it as a supercharged control panel where you can change everything, from the way your mouse looks all the way to creating hard drive partitions and so on.

Enabling GodMode

If you are ready to take a step down the rabbit hole then this is how you enable GodMode in your window seven machine:

1. First navigate to a folder of your choosing such as my documents or the root drive and then create a folder, make sure you create the folder in a place that you can access it easily, having this handy tool buried within a deep folder on your hard drive will not do you any good. Creating this folder in the desktop is also a good idea.

2. Rename the folder you just created with the following string of text: GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

3. Once you have renamed the folder you will notice that the icon will no longer be yellow but rather blue which emulates a weight that the control panel shortcut looks. If you see that the folder you just created has changed its icon and that the string of text you just pasted has changed into just “GodMode” then you are ready to roll.

Some of the sections that you will notice within GodMode are: the action Center, administrative tools, autoplay, devices and printers, display, ease of access center, power options, programs and features, recovery, region and language, sound, speech recognition, sync Center, system, troll shooting, user accounts, Windows card space and many more.

So if you think that Windows 7 is pretty good right out of the box and you may not have many things to change within the operating system but if you want to change some of the interface or environmental variables then this is a very fast window seven trick that you have to check out.

If you are not the Windows savvy person but still want to check this great option and make sure to go online and do a little bit of research about the setting you are about to modify, that way if you happen to break something you can always refer to the very same section where you made the modifications and go back to its previous state.
