Are you looking for a quick way to find some kind of security issue with a particular Windows 7 install? You’re an IT geek or your regular daily IT job includes fixing a lot of Windows 7 and Vista broken computers?
I’m sure you will be puzzled to hear about Microsoft embedded default “hack” (feature / shortcut) GodMode. I’m not how exactly “GodMode” should be called is it a security leak? a nice pro admin required feature? or a bad joke with M$ users M$ developers did …
Now you probably still wonder what is GodMode, it is an easy to create Shortcut directory, which when created does an automatic link to all Administrator and Settings services on a Windows OS Desktop PC or Notebook.
GodMode is like all administrator programs link to all management tools accessible via one specific to create (New Directory). It is a sort of Shortcut to everything one accesses from Start Menu, Control Panel and all admin PC interfaces.
GodMode is super handy if you hate to use the messed up and hard to memorize tools in Control Panel ….
Here is a list of all the Utilities you can change via creating the “GodMode” shortcut (New Folder):
Action Center, Administrative Tools, AutoPlay, Backup and Restore, BitLocker Drive Encryption,
Color, Management, Credential Manager, Date and Time, Default Programs, Desktop Gadgets, Device Manager,
Devices and Printer, Display, Easy of Access Center, Folder Options, Fonts, Gettings Started, HomeGroup,
Indexing Options, Internet Options, Keyboard, Mouse, Network and Sharing Center, Notification Area Icons,
Performance Information and Tools, Personalization, Phone and Modem, Power Options, Programs and Features,
Recovery, Region and Language, RemoteApp and Desktop Connections, Sound, Speech Recognition, Sync Center,
System, Taskbar and Start Menu, Troubleshoting, User Accounts, Windows CardSpace, Windows Defender,
Windows Firewall, Windows Update
GodMode is really AWESOME! Its THE DREAM OF THE WINDOWS SYSTEM ADMINISTRATOR COME TRUE 🙂
To get access to all this handy Linked under one Shortcut utilities, all you have to do is create a New Folder (on Windows Desktop plot or anywhere on the Hard Drive) with the following string (name) as New Folder name:
You will get on your Desktop (or whatever New Directory is created) a Shortcut to all system available management tools.
Below are two screenshots of “GodMode” :):
GodMode is an handy shortcut for tech savvys and for anyone running a PC repair shop it will certainly be previous one to know of.
Using it one can save really a lot of time, screen pondering and obsolete clicks.
GodMode “trick” should work on all M$ Windows 7 / Vista (Pro, Home, Business, Laziness) or whatever. From security standpoint it is a big joke as it can give so easy to way to a possible malicious easier to review system configs and look up for things to break.
I wondery Why Microsoft developers call it GodMode at all? It is just a shortcut and it doesn’t grant you administrator (god like) system access ? Well anyways, Enjoy 😉
