Activate Windows 7 God Mode 5

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:

  1. Create a new folder (I put it on my Desktop, but it can be anywhere you like).
  2. 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.
