How to Enable Windows 7 Godmode



Computer KeyboardHow catchy and interesting is that? Windows 7 Godmode! I don’t even recall how I came to find it, but I do recall it almost immediately caught my attention. Just about any computer geek or Windows fanatic would probably be intrigued by this one.

The title implies you can unlock some form of superpower or hidden God like ability on your Windows 7 computer. It doesn’t really give your computer the power to do anything it couldn’t already do, but more along the lines of shortcuts.

Developers and Technicians will probably appreciate and get the most use out of it, but it is still fun to play with and check out if you are a Windows 7 or computer nut.

Warning: Enable and use this at your own risk. This is for Windows 7 versions only!

How to enable Windows 7 Godmode:

1. Create a folder on your desktop.

2. Rename it to the following:
GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

3. Open the new folder and have fun playing with all the options.

Remember: This is for Windows 7 only!

Basically instead of navigating through a bunch of hoops and menus in your Windows 7 control panel Godmode provides a direct link to most features, which can help save you some time.

Additional:
There are a number of other hidden features/modes you can check out if interested. Once again use them at your own risk.

You simply create a folder on your desktop and rename it to (something.string).

For example:
mode1.{00C6D95F-329C-409a-81D7-C46C66EA7F33}

I haven’t tested all the strings listed here or on the Microsoft (MSDN) website, but I have tried out Godmode.

Have fun, use them and play at your own risk!
