Windows 7: God Mode

Ever get frustrated with the control panel of Windows 7? I always stuck with the "classic view" since it was a whole lot easier to find stuff. Now with Windows 7 you are not with that possibility anymore.

However, there is another hidden feature called the "God Mode" which gives you basically a classic control panel, but with even more possibilities. And all of that combined in a single list!

How to enable this God Mode?
Easy, create a new folder anywhere you want to be able to access this feature, for example the desktop:

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

You will notice that the icon has changed to the "Control Panel" icon:

From here, you will get the whole list of the things you can change to change the appearence of your Windows 7 machine.
