    [h=2]Enable & Open God Mode on Windows 7/8[/h]1. On your Windows desktop right click on desktop to create a new Folder. Then rename the newly created folder as:
    GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

    2. Then folder icon will change to Control Panel icon with now name as ‘God Mode’on the desktop. Double click it to open.

    I remember this and have used this before...I tried this and like before it has a problem. The I con changes and it appears to be going to the right place but the icon name didn't change automaticly...am I doing something wrong?

    Hi

    I don't know, I just did it.
    I had forgotten about this, I did it in Windows 7.

    I just did it in Windows 8 and it made a folder named God Mode and everything is in there.

    I just right clicked on the desktop, selected new, and then folder and pasted in...

    GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

    ... as the name and it worked.

    Mike

    That is really strange...I followed the steps...makes me wonder what I am doing to the system that keeps it from changing the name...I had thought that not allowing it to hide the extensions of unknown file types would be the cause but it wasn't...I guess if it isn't going to hurt anything I could always put the original in my Program Files directory and make a shortcut in my Administrator Tools directory, that should be a workable solution. I just hate not knowing what is going on and why it is acting like that.

    I know what you mean, it drives me crazy when things don't work right, even when it's something that doesn't make any difference.

    I can't tell you how many times I have screwed up my computer trying to fix something that I could just have ignored.

    Hello everyone, just FYI, you can name the folder anything of your choosing, as long as this "{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}" remains unchanged.
    This has been around since XP and I don't foresee Microsoft changing it, therefore, it will work with every edition of Windows.


    Regards
    Don

    Yup, it's still the same here... in my Windows7Pro. I called it "Ultimate Panel".

    Will be holding onto Windows7 for a long time yet. I love it, and it loves me..!
