I think they probably did while it was still in the design and testing phase. Who knows.

Not sure it is related but after creating the god mode folder my computer started to get a little 'glitchy' , i just uninstalled it to be safe.

As it turns out, it doesn't have to be named "God Mode"... you can call it whatever you want as long as the alphanumeric string is there.

I think it crashes Vista 64bit systems. Seems to work fine with my version of Window 7 Ultimate 64bit.


what DOESN"T crash Vista 32/64 bit...? ~!!

Vista is a POS~period~!

I put them all into a folder on the desktop called "GodMode." I use them extensively during initial setup. Then I move the folder into MyDocs.

I tried it on my pre-release Win8 64bit build and it worked with no errors.

Thanks for the link. Its seems that its all just an alternate version of the control panel. Like i said in my earlier post theres nothing there that you cant access through more conventional routes. Also the article says its a pretty limited list in the first place.

Yes, to be clear, this is an alternate way of accessing tasks from the Control Panel, plus a few others that are further buried--in that infuriating way Microsoft has of hiding easy tasks in hard places. The point, to my mind, is that it lays them all out in a single place. Rather than having to try to remember where exactly they're all buried, you just grab them from a single place of your own choosing.

The fact that they also exist in more "conventional" places of Microsoft's choice doesn't make them any less handy. They've saved me many headaches and many hours of setup time across the dozens of installations I've done....

I just saw the list you posted at zdnet


I agree if you dont know your way around windows or cant remember the routes to all the parts of windows then the list could really help out.

But for myself after spending years learning the in's and out's of the OS for exams and work i find it just as quick to go the conventional routes. For all the Microsoft certifications you really have to know how to get to these control panel items the correct way. Also i have to be able to explain those routes and the tasks click by click to clients over the phone or though emails when they are having problems.

Having a few short cuts isnt going speed things up when you have several 100 machines to setup and configure in a morning day. But having a long list might be ideal for the average user, but it kind of defeats the idea of a Graphical User Interface if things are just in a text list. Each to their own i guess

No, you misunderstand. They're not just in a list. Those are the actual names I use for the the God Modes. I use the list to generate the controls from a .vbs file.

Unlike your case, I'm not required to know where every control resides, nor to explain it to anyone else. I rarely have to set up a Windows 7 machine, but I have had to set up more than a handful. To me, a folder on the desktop during setup is very handy (though not indispensible). To many others, it is both indispensible and very nearly magical.

Not everyone is a Microsoft wiz....
