Windows 7: All Tasks Shortcut

There were links going a year or so ago around about a mythical ‘God Mode’ in Windows 7 that reveals ‘hidden’ features.

What it is really is a link to a special windows folder using a CLSID key found in the registry under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}. There was a tip like this in TweakUI for XP that put a control panel shortcut on your start menu or IE on your desktop. There’s a massive list of these special folders and they can be found by simply navigating the afore-mentioned registry key.

To use the ‘god mode’ or the All Tasks if you prefer, simply create a folder on your desktop and rename it to:

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

Now when you open it you get access to a massive list of links that are openly available in Windows 7.

No deity operational subset(God Mode) involved. and better still, your immortal souls are still intact.
