Create a folder on your desktop.

Rename the folder to: GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

Open the folder, check that finizzle out! Very cool admin trick.

You can name the folder anything you want, it's the key that makes this happen.

FlaGator.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

will work just fine.

This is just a shell folder around the Win7 All Tasks feature, which MS decided to "hide" from the general user when they released Win7.

There are reports saying that you shouldn't do it on Vista 64-bit, as it makes your computer unstable.

what does it do?

Creates the ultimate control panel application. With it you can access just about every subsystem of the W7 interface and alter it. I've dreamed of a tool just like this for years. A single place through which you can alter just about any aspect of the W7 OS.
