    Default Windows 7 "Easter Egg"

    Found this on the www at BillP thoughts (Winpatrol).
    http://billpstudios.blogspot.com/

    It works on the Win 7 Laptop, but not (not surprisingly) on the Win XP computer.

    ==================================
    Recently news of what some still consider an easter-egg within Windows 7 was shared via the social networks. The news spread fast due to the unique name, “God Mode”. While a much better name could have been chosen God Mode is actually a useful feature.
    God Mode isn’t really an Easter-egg but will create what you might consider as a Super Control Panel.

    Creating God Mode is simple. Just right-click on your Desktop or any folder and select New –> Folder from the menu.


    Just name this folder by using copy and paste.

    GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
    The results will be

    The truth is you don’t have to call it God Mode. Any text in front of the CLSID numbers will work. Do not leave a space after the fullstop.
    NOTE: Some report this may not be supported by x64 bit Windows. See comments.

    You could also copy and paste the following.
    BillP’s Super Control Panel.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

    When you click on the new icon Windows Explorer will open. The right side will include a huge number of Windows 7 configuration and management utilities. Technically this is the Windows 7 “All Tasks” list, a useful tool.
