    I take no responsibility if you wish to try this... however, I am happily running it on my system with no issues. If you are using Windows Vista, don't even attempt it.

    “God Mode”, for Windows.

    God Mode is fantastic. There are no "dangers" to running it yourself, aside from what you do with the internal options. Contrary to some reports, it isn't a hack, but a leftover tool access from the developers. You can access it by just creating a new folder and giving it a specific GUID name. Not terribly useful for an average user, though.

    Old news, but a cool shortcut non the less. Name is deceiving but it's a nice set of shortcuts

    I'm NOT such a computer genius, so can ANYONE explain this to me? What it does? Thanks.

    Allows you to access all the OS' control panels. That's the basic idea.

    Since I'm getting a new laptop soon, I might try this on the old one. One question, though:

    What exactly are the risks? If the developer's put it in, then I don't see them putting in abug just to screw with you. So, what are the dangers associated with this, if any?

    I just tried it out. It doesn't run any risks. As far as I can tell it's pretty much like Control Panel only laid out differently. Just a bunch of shortcuts directly to different system settings in an easy to read fashion.

    Been using the God Mode shortcut for 3 years now. Pretty nice to have every single command in one convenient place.

    Just don't mess with stuff you don't understand and you should be fine

    Only risks are the options you may choose and what they may change. It's a simpler access, with more options, for every single function in the Control Panel. Using it is absolutely, 100%, totally risk free. What you do WITH the functions is up to you. It's just... Uber-Control Panel, that's all. Nice tools, for advanced users.

    I tried this on Vista like you said not to and now I regret it. My computer said it was going to restart and it just kept saying that over and over again. Luckily I fixed it, though all of my files are gone now. :(

    I did the same thing :lol 

    However, there's a much easier way. Ctrl+Alt+Delete, run file, winzip.exe (assuming you have it, but doesn't everyone?) and use the file browser through there, and rename the god mode folder. Back to normal.
