Don’t get too excited… it’s not as awesome as God Mode in DOOM, but it is a fun little easier egg for uber-geeks hiding under the hood of Windows 7. Windows 7 God Mode allows you to tinker with all of the the operating system’s control panel items from within a single folder.
Here’s how you do it:
- Create a new folder (I put it on my Desktop, but it can be anywhere you like).
- Rename the folder to:
The folder’s icon will then change a blue control panel. Open it up, and check out all the stuff you can control.
Don’t let the power go to your head. 🙂
Rumor has it that this also works in Windows Vista, but I just upgraded my last copy of Vista, so someone else is going to have to test it out and confirm it in the comments.
