GodMode Win7

God Mode is neither a utility nor functionality.  It also doesn’t add any new functionality to Windows.  It is simply a hidden shortcut for Windows developers that provide more direct access to the features and functions of the Operating System.  It helps administrators work more efficiently by collecting all these tweaks and controls in one place.

Follow the below steps to access God Mode:

  1. Open Windows Explorer.  Right-Click, select ‘New’ and then click ‘Folder’
  2. Rename the folder.  New name should be exactly like GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
  3. The folder icon should now be replaced with ‘Control Panel’ icon filled with all the tweaks and tools.

A post in a Microsoft forum by Auri Rahimzadeh provides a short script that will quickly create the GodMode folders. Copy and paste the following text (immediately below this paragraph) into Notepad. Name the file “godmodes.bat” and save it on your hard drive in the location where you would like the folders to be. Running this script will create a new folder called Special Folders that will contain all of the developer shortcut folders (as shown in the clickable thumbnail figure below). Also, by changing the text where it says “Special Folders” in the first two lines of the script, you could rename the new folder anything you’d like.

mkdir “Special Folders
cd “.\Special Folders
mkdir “God Mode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
mkdir “Location Settings.{00C6D95F-329C-409a-81D7-C46C66EA7F33}
mkdir “Biometric Settings.{0142e4d0-fb7a-11dc-ba4a-000ffe7ab428}

mkdir “Application Connections.{241D7C96-F8BF-4F85-B01F-E2B043341A4B}
mkdir “Firewall and Security.{4026492F-2F69-46B8-B9BF-5654FC07E423}
mkdir “Performance.{78F3955E-3B90-4184-BD14-5397C15F1EFC}

For accessing God Mode, you do not have to enable anything.  The tools exists already, and God Mode is really nothing more than a grouping of those tools.
