W10 Easter Present for easier use.

Recommended Posts

Hi all, stumbled on this little gem today that makes one really annoying aspect of W10 a little easier.  If you already have it you can congratulate yourself!

Create a new folder on your desktop.

Rename the folder by copying this entire string, including the curly brackets, by using whatever rename method you do.

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

When you open the folder it will then display all the things you used to be able to get via Control Panel, and a whole lot more.  Very useful at times.  It doesn't show a name, but that's a small price to pay.

With the folder opened, you can also dragndrop to create shortcuts as necessary.
With joy and chocolate from the Australian Easter Bunny.     🍫 🥚 

cheers, Aus

(In doing those emojis, it did occur to me how odd it is that we have a bunny delivering eggs.  Why don't we have the Easter Chook?  oops...Chicken for you non-Aussies.  Then again, perhaps the "Easter Bunny" is only an Aussie thing.)

Very cool indeed.....

I seem to remember seeing something like god mode in a Win7 forum years back, but I don't recall it being this simple to implement.

Thanks, Aus Easter Bunny

it look like useful....  but some Java implemented app and many other specific application was closed or crashed, sometimes even if i try to sw to another folder.

Deleted renamed folder - all restart without problem.

I spent some time figuring out what's wrong.
One of the programmer forum participants gave a hint ...

So you have to be careful using this "magic wand".    :)

BTW - South Park addressed the bunny thing.  The whole episode is not online, but I found this-

Look CLOSELIER!!! MORE CLOSELIER!!!
and the PEEPS thing is hilarious!
I'm not an SP fan, but that was funny :-)

Yes, it was.   Does this mean that Joe spends hours in the cigar lab watching Sth Park?      Joecigar2.jpg.27eb0f63941cc5b3e39a609a73b79c47.jpg 

Kratmel, I haven't had any issues using it, wondering if it might be a language specific type thing?

 

cheers, Aus

In my case Java implemented software crashed when user try to Save as option in file menu.

No error generated - opened software window and "save as" dialog dissapeared from screen. I found more then 3 application with this behavior on two machine.

Win10 OEM (single language - Ukraine) preinstalled on Asus Vivo. Another one puter - Win10 OEM Prof on the same another Asus. Next gen CPU in second one.
