Play God with Windows 7

God mode for Windows 7
[Photo courtsey: GigaOm]

For those who are used to the nuances of Windows XP, which has all its babies listed in one or the other Control Panel apps, using Windows 7 might be a pain in the wrong place. Windows 7 hosts its various controlling features at several different places. Although with the new and improved Start menu, these features are not that difficult to find (all you need to do is to type in their name and voila!), its equally impossible to remember each and every one of those apps that controls the various features in Windows 7.

But don't fret! There's an easy way out of this mess, which ofcourse Microsoft won't tell you about. The God mode for Windows 7!

Yes ladies and gentlemen, just like any other game which lets you have unjust and sometimes infinite control on its various characters through their God mode features, Windows 7 too lets you control it various features and allows you to tweak them from one single place using it's God mode feature.

So how to access the God mode for Windows 7? Its no rocket science, trust me. All you need to do is to head over to your desktop and create a new folder on it. Then rename it to "GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}", sans the quotes, and you would instantly see that the icon for the folder has changed into a Control Panel icon. Once you open the folder you would see that all of Windows 7's control panels would be accessible from inside that one single folder.

And although it might seem a bit difficult to manage such a huge list of Control Panel apps, there are around 278 of them, if you notice closely you would see that all the apps are stored under various Groups. You can collapse and expand these groups as and when necessary as per your requirements.

So have a nice time tinkering with the God mode for Windows 7, but don't forget to subscribe to the RSS feed for more such amazing news and updates.
