How To Enable God Mode in Windows 7

I grabbed this from Karl over at AskTheAdmin. I thought it was pretty interesting. With just a quick renaming of a folder in Windows 7 you can make fancy folders. One of them being a “God Mode” folder. Check it out:

So it turns out there are a list of folder “Codes” that you can add to the end of a folder name to create all sorts of special folders. Check out the list of codes here:


And, as a reminder, to create the God mode folder itself, use this string:


All you need to do is create a new folder with any name, then a period, then one of the text strings above. For example, the first one could be a folder named “AskTheAdmin.{00C6D95F-329C-409a-81D7-C46C66EA7F33}” (use everything inside quotes–but not the quotes themselves).

This should make customizing your Windows 7 machine a lot easier!
