Earlier this week, we took a look at the much hyped God Mode‘ trick and explained how it works and why it isn’t Godly after all. The God Mode trick simply uses Globally Unique Identifiers (GUID), which point to certain special folders.
Ed Bott provided the GUIDs for 39 useful Windows 7 and Vista shortcuts. Now, the folks at TheWindowsClub have created a free utility to easily create God Modes in Windows 7 and Vista. The utility contains 38 useful special folder shortcuts. Simply click on an icon and it will automatically create the respective shortcut on your desktop.
Techie Buzz Verdict
God Modes act as simple shortcuts to various special folders already present in your system. They don’t reveal any hidden settings and as such are only useful for providing quick access to frequently used options. The GodMode Creator is a straight-forward app, which simplifies this process by automatically creating the shortcuts for you. However, the main limitation of this app is that, the shortcuts are always created on your desktop. There is no option to specify the target directory.
