Win7: “God Mode”

Here’s a new Windows 7 tip that’s been flying around the Internet:

If you want to have a single folder where you can access almost any setting you’d ever need, just create a new folder wherever you’d like and give it the following name:


This will create a folder which contains quick links to every Control Panel option, Windows 7’s “Action Center”, the “Backup and Restore” applet, Autorun settings, desktop gadgets, “Devices and Printers” and more.

I have to kind of laugh at the name, though. It’s not really “God Mode”, especially since you could simply type the name of any of these applets into the search box on the Start Menu. But still, if you’re a tweaker who likes having everything at his or her fingertips, then maybe “God Mode” is for you!
