GodMode

Count the steps it takes to get to a Windows setting--it's often a laborious task. Want to do a disk cleanup? You'll have to go to: Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Cleanup.

Many Windows settings and tools require similar, lengthy sets of steps, especially for minor system tweaks that are buried within tools (like adding a new wireless network).

God Mode, a hidden Windows feature, gives you a complete list of every single system setting and tool, letting you create your own customized control panel for quicker access to these settings and tools.

Follow these steps to create your custom control panel:

Enable God Mode: Create a new folder on your desktop, and name it GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

Create another new folder on your desktop, titled "Control Panel" (or any other name you choose).

Open up the folder created in Step 1. You'll see a huge list of system settings, tools, and options. The list even includes options that are buried within tools, like Change Desktop Background. Find your most frequently used settings, and drag them into your new "Control Panel" folder.

Tip: Collapse all the settings groups for easier viewing of all the GodMode items.

(Optional) Pin your new control panel to the Start menu or Taskbar for quick access by dragging and dropping.

Area, is there any problem if I leave the folder created in step 1 (the GodMode folder) as-is? It is still a nice shortcut.

Is the purpose of step2 to reduce the number of options to frequently used options?

Then I'll leave the GodMode folder as-is. Thank you again for the great tip!
