Windows 7 - GodMode

Here's a little trick that let you access to almost 300 different settings for your Windows 7 32 and 64bits versions, Vista 32 bits works too (careful when using in 64 bits).

  1. Create a new folder (Ctrl+Shift+N) anywhere in your PC
  2. rename it with this: GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C} (you can change the GodMode part with anything you want)
  3. Then just double click the new icon created

GodMode in action

Hope this helps !

'Favorites' handy folder in Windows 7

Something i really liked about Windows 7 (and i think Windows Vista had it too), its the Favorites folder.

Favorites folder
In it you can put as many shortcuts as you want to the folders you use more often, saving you the hassle of navigate to that specific folder. As you can see i have the most frequent ones i use in my daily routine, from my Desktop folder to External drives, etc.

Customize yours !

Short tip for enabling check boxes on Windows 7

When you are selecting multiple items on Windows 7 it could be difficult to keep pressed the Ctrl-Key and clicking in each items (if you are selecting multiple non-secuential items that is), and what happens when you click somewhere else ? You deselect your already selected items.

  1. Click the Start button
  2. Type Folder Options and hit enter
  3. Go to the View tab
  4. Search near the bottom of the Advanced settings area for Use check boxes to select items and enable it.

And thats it !
