    To get acces to a much bigger control panel called Godmode you can do this trick:

    Create a folder on C:\
    Name this folder: GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

    After this you see the control panel icon named Godmode. Click it and you can reach almost all Windows 7 settings by one click.

    Hmm. I think it's just controlpanel in a different shape. And a lot of things are available immediately instead of going through several menus in the normal control panel..

    True, this is the way the control should be im my opinion. Windows 7 and Vista ask for many clicks to do some settings and here you have them all on one page.

    Made is sticky for a while to get as much as possible people to see- and get use of it. There are more tricks that look like this but after a few tests, this was the best.

    As Johan mentions - it's not godmode - it's just alot of shortcuts of the controlpanel/startmenu assembled one place. Also knows as AllTasks in former versions of Win7.
    In fact, you can name the folder anything you want i.e:
    racedepartment.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
    kitty.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
    etc ...
    Just to inform ya'll. :)

    I know, but in Microsoft terms this is called GodMode, you can give it any name indeed.
