    Unfairly derided by tech critics, the secret "God Mode" in Windows 7 is really just a nifty way to discover features you never knew existed.

    I prefer to create a shortcut instead of renaming a folder... I have file extensions turned on and if you create the folder the way this tutorial says you get a nasty long captioned icon on your desktop.

    Instead create a new shortcut and point it to: %SystemRoot%\Explorer.exe shell:::{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
    And if you want to change its icon, chose so and browse to %systemroot%\system32\shell32.dll for tons of icons =)
