    Check out the source for a video of "GodMode" in action.
    And FYI, GodMode is just the nickname given, you can call the folder anything you want so long as the {brackets} are intact.

    I think MS wanted to implement this, but didn't tell us anything about it. ...

    Just tried it but it keeps causing my explorer.exe to keep crashing. This is using Vista 32bit so it should work. Dont really care. It is more of a novelty in my opinion.

    Yes, the "GodMode" nickname they gave it was misleading, this is mostly just a very convenient list of control panel functions.

    But still a very nice find.

    This is awesome. It's boring looking for the correct functions in the CPanel. Thanks!

    Wish there was a similar thing for XP, oh well obviously doesn't have enough features to make this needed by developers/beta testers.
