Now how does someone find that out?

Look through the registry, and try out every single function?

Now how does someone find that out?

in the registy there is a list of CLSID globally unique identifier (GUID) that points to a shell folder, in this case the Control Panel.

So this folder opens in the control panel in Explorer and then you can change the views like a normal explorer window

All of the options in "God Mode" list are already available in the normal Control Panel. There actually isn't a single tweak new or hidden new feature here

here are some more "God modes" to try

They are GUIDs of Explorer extensions

Hey thanks Nathan - OK who's tried them all :lol:

This one will be useful - One that I regularly use, just a little quicker now.

If it's any help I have a script from Technet that will create the Win 7 god mode folders (all of them ) for you.

Anyone wants it PM me.

hey do the ones that nmercer found work in vista? And if so how do you make them. Or is that what your script does Sweep?

You simply create a folder, then rename it -- BTW doesn't matter what you call it either. Notice the . after the name All you will see is the name you created. tried them all as listed, some appear not to work in W7. Have not tried in Vista.

Example: computer.{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}

Will make/ change the folder Icon and you will have a link to as if opening Computer / my Computer.

Edited: dont know who called it god mode, but its just a name someone made up - its simply a shortcut to a reg key thats already in vista / W7 at least.

Example:
Type regedit in RUN or Startmenu Searchbox and press Enter. It'll open Registry Editor. Now go to following key:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

Or press "Ctrl+F" in Registry Editor and search for {ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C} string. It'll open the same key for you.

Looks like The script and how to do it (http://blogs.techrepublic.com.com/window-on-windows/?p=1976&tag=nl.e132) is posted as well.

Couldn't be bothered looking through technet - to much info :dogeye:

Mind you the "average" person wouldn't ever use most of the functions.

There's also a tool / program, that does it for you in Vista and Win7.

I just get the Newletters and it was in there and I agree that most people would never use them all.

Was it the Technet Flash newsletter Sweep ??? The last one I have is

Volume 12, Issue 1 | January 13, 2010

Which reminds me - better do This month’s Microsoft Partner Research Panel study -- I had to tick yes years ago didn't I :lol:
