GodMode Cheat codes in Windows 7

Ever have trouble changing your IP address in Windows 7? Just having to adjust to a new operating system is a total shock for most people. All the places where settings used to be are all moved or rearranged. Microsoft really paid attention to making the systems easier to learn for beginners, so if you have never used a pc before that’s great but for those of us who have, relearning actually puts us to a disadvantage.

windows7-godmodeEnter the “Godmode” Folder. Ok I know that this is not a new trick, and that it’s been brought back to life by the colorful naming but I must admit, I like it easy, and “Godmode” makes it easy. I have found this to be quite useful so I decided I would share it with you.

Godmode is a reference to the old IDDQD cheat code in ID Software’s Doom game series. IDDQD made your player invincible ie: godlike.  IDKFA gave the player all the weapons, and all the keys to all  the doors in the game. This is kinda similar to the latter as it gives you every control panel that is spread throughout the computer, on one screen. I remember how difficult it was to find the new Add Remove Programs, well not anymore! IP address settings? Not any more! This is pretty humorous as “Godmode” really has nothing to do with creating Control Panel Icons.

Gaining this super elite Godmode over your computer is actually pretty simple! Just create a folder, anywhere, and rename it to: GODMODE.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

You can copy / paste that into the rename field to make it easier. This will grant you access to ALL system settings in one location. Which in Win7 can be pretty handy. If you’re like the average person, finding where Microsoft has moved everything to can be tiresome. Having it all in one place is really helpful.

Want to really impress your friends? Well Godmode has nothing to do with this Hack. Actually the GUI ID in the name is everything to do with it, that word in front of the period is just what the folder will end up being named. The word before the period/fullstop can be whatever you want to call the folder. So Green_CompleX.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C} Would work just as well, but the functionality is really the most interesting part of all. Enjoy exploring all those hard to find settings!

Just right click your desktop, and goto new, then click on folder name it:

    Fantastic! I remember a feature like this in windows 95, which helped you create a control panel folder… and most system folders have some or the other ID
