"God Mode" - Not many people know of this really handy, and pretty well-hidden feature of Windows 7 and later versions. You can create a GodMode folder icon, which when clicked allows you to easily tweak everything from your desktop background to setting up a VPN in one centralized control list. To set this up on Windows use the following instructions.

  1. Create a New Folder. Create the folder anywhere because location doesn’t matter at all.
  2. Right click on the empty folder and rename that folder with this exact name: God Mode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
  3. Now press enter or click anywhere else to apply the folder rename change.
  4. Double click on that icon to launch GodMode!
