Someone introduced me to a neat Windows 7 trick that’s been doing the rounds on the Internet. It enables GodMode, where all Windows settings into a single folder. To use it:

  • Create a new folder.
  • Rename the folder to GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

This got me thinking ...

Where could I find other custom extensions that might be interesting?

Any suggestions?

Good idea, there is no "right" answer, just interesting ... – Noah Feb 22 '10 at 17:03

This "Godmode Maker" one lets you choose from over 50 "Deities" :)

Be A Windows God With Go GodMode

As you probably know, GodMode provides quick access to an operating system's more or less hidden controls (Windows Vista/Seven). How does that work? You have to create a folder with a certain string (GUID) at the end.

But that can be pretty hard and, even, unaesthetic. Why? Well, it can get pretty hard to create a lot of them (considering the large number of GodModes out there). Furthermore, that GUID doesn't look very nice on your desktop.

This is where Go GodMode enters the scene: This small app will help you create over 50 GodModes just by selecting them and pressing the GO button. It also provides a few cool options:

Instead of creating the folders on your desktop, you can create them in a folder on your computer and just create a shortcut on your desktop. You can also add shortcuts to the Start Menu, QuickLaunch and Favorites folder.

You can add GodModes to folder and desktop context menus without even adding a single file or folder to your harddrive!
