GodMode Creator for Windows 7 and Vista
By on January 11th, 2010

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.

    I am happy that its got 2 at least. The reason I (I am author of it) didn't put an option to specify the target directory is it would be really annoying if every now and then it keeps on asking for Folder to create shortcut. Thats why I even didn't put any confirmation box.

    The only reason for creating is to help user know what a God Mode is and made there work easy. :)

    I appreciated the fact that you posted about it.

      Good work on the utility. The reason why I wanted the ability to use a custom directory is that, the main use I can see of God Mode is to create sort of your own version of Control Panel (containing the options you need most frequently).

      May be you can put in a small box in the main page allowing us to specify the directory to be used for creating the shortcuts. You don't really need to ask every time.

    We all seem to have heard about the 32 bit Vista/Win7 God Mode, but since it is not compatible with a 64 bit system I wish someone would find a way around that problem and post how to it!
