Windows 7 - "God Mode"

posted 13 Mar 2010, 15:56 by Delphi Basics
As of Windows Vista, each Control Panel item is given a canonical name for use in programmatically launching that item. This topic lists each Control Panel item, its canonical name, and its GUID:

Microsoft documentation of canonical names:

There exists an undocumented GUID which enables the user to enter "God Mode" [only on Windows 7]. This lists all 278 of the control items in a single folder. :)

1.First make a folder
2.Rename it to this - GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
3.The folder should change to a icon.
4.Now when you click on it, it will bring up the great list of options, and tweaks for Windows 7.


Note: Do not try on Windows Vista or below. The result is BSOD.
