Windows 7 Godmode - The Truth!!!

I recently came across a video showing this astonishing sounding windows 7 Godmode. After watching the video and doing some more research and then finally trying it out to see how it exactly works, i found it pretty useful. Without explaining you what it does let me first tell you how to get this to work. Its easy just follow these steps:

  • Right click on your desktop and create a new folder.
  • Rename it to "GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}" without the quotes. You can use any name instead of godmode.
  • Press enter. And now you will see that its icon has changed.
  • Go ahead and open it(am sure your pc won't explode:P)

windows 7 vista godmode

What you see now is the collection of all the settings that you ever thought of applying to your pc. The very fact that you can change any settings from here i.e from a single place makes it pretty useful, especially if you love playing with your settings everyday:) . I think this feature should have been available by default in windows 7 but still we know it now. Godmode is just a name that was used to create the hype..

Recently microsoft accepted that such strings were available even before windows vista was released. Here is the list of other strings you may want to try. The steps are the same just use these strings instead of the one used above...

Some other strings that creates folders with similar functionality:

  1. {00C6D95F-329C-409a-81D7-C46C66EA7F33}
  2. {0142e4d0-fb7a-11dc-ba4a-000ffe7ab428}
  3. {025A5937-A6BE-4686-A844-36FE4BEC8B6D}
  4. {05d7b0f4-2121-4eff-bf6b-ed3f69b894d9}
  5. {1206F5F1-0569-412C-8FEC-3204630DFB70}
  6. {15eae92e-f17a-4431-9f28-805e482dafd4}
  7. {17cd9488-1228-4b2f-88ce-4298e93e0966}
  8. {1D2680C9-0E2A-469d-B787-065558BC7D43}
  9. {1FA9085F-25A2-489B-85D4-86326EEDCD87}
  10. {208D2C60-3AEA-1069-A2D7-08002B30309D}
  11. {20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}
  12. {2227A280-3AEA-1069-A2DE-08002B30309D}
  13. {241D7C96-F8BF-4F85-B01F-E2B043341A4B}
  14. {4026492F-2F69-46B8-B9BF-5654FC07E423}
  15. {62D8ED13-C9D0-4CE8-A914-47DD628FB1B0}
  16. {78F3955E-3B90-4184-BD14-5397C15F1EFC}

Note- Don't try this on windows vista 64 bit, it may cause some problems. On other versions it works fine..

And i know its been months since someone(cnet) found it. But i think not many people know this, i too didn't knew of this trick until recently. So hope this helped. Thanks to CNET for this great trick.

Thanks for reading:D
