Before we talk about what is God Mode let us first see how to activate it.

Step 1: Create a new folder anywhere.

Step 2: Rename the folder with codes given below. Simply copy and paste it in place of name of folder.

God Mode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

Step 3: Once you rename it you will see that folder icon changes to control panel icon and it is named as Gode Mode.

You can also watch the demonstration on YouTube on below link.

Now before you start using God Mode there is a word of caution. Although windows says God Mode existed for version earlier to Windows 7. It has been reported by users that when they created God Mode on Windows Vista and used it it crashed their system. Microsoft was not able to recreate this issue in their lab so there is not known remedy to this issue. However, It works fine on Windows 7 and Windows 8.

Let us come to to the question what is God Mode?.

God Mode  provides more direct access to features and functions of the operating system.  In simple words you can see all the Control Panel settings in one page where different settings are grouped together conveniently. To be clear, God Mode doesn’t add functionality but it helps administrators work more efficiently by collecting all these tweaks and controls in one place.

This page which shows all the settings is also known as “All Tasks” page and you can get more information about it from Windows Registry.

Type regedit in RUN or Start Menu Searchbox and press Enter. It’ll open Registry Editor. Now go to following key:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

Or press “Ctrl+F” in Registry Editor and search for {ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C} string. It’ll open the same key for you.

I would suggest not to make any changes here else you would break something, it is just to show you where does this “All Tasks” or “God Mode works from”. Notice the string it is the same string which we used in to name the God Mode folder.

Since we know this secret now let me tell you one more secret. Name of this feature can be any thing it does not necessarily have to be God Mode. You can add this short cut with your name. The trick is, instead of God Mode before the dot write your name, so just replace the underlined words with your name.

God Mode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

My Name.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

It will now create short cut with My Name now.

So go ahead and give it a try and let me know how is it useful to you.
