Windows God Mode

Hello everyone, today I want to show you something neat you can use to simplify Administration of your Windows Systems. This neat little trick is called “God Mode”. Well, it does not provide you with the powers of a god but it delivers you a useful toolbox with almost all settings you need to efficiently administrate your Windows System. This is especially useful on Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 Systems if you are like me and struggle with the new interface.

Ok, here are the steps to create your own God Mode Shortcut:

First you need to create a new folder.

godmode_new_folder

Next think of a good name for your God Mode Shortcut and append the following string:

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

For example I called my God Mode Shortcut “AllSettings”:

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

godmode_naming

When you hit enter you will notice that the folder icon will change immediately into the Control Panel icon:

godmode_icon

Double click on it to open the Settings window:

godmode_settings

Well, that´s it. You now have a neat little toolbox with a lot of useful settings set up in less than 1 minute. Pretty cool, right?

I hope my post was useful for you and I hope to see you again next time 🙂
