Windows 7 godmodes and hidden settings.


Today We’ll be discussing the hidden settings (and shortcuts) in windows 7.

Windows 7 has some developer oriented settings and control panels, for example shortcuts to directly access GPS setting (yes there are GPS settings), biometry settings, or just printer settings.

To unlock these modes all you need to do is to create a folder with any name (angrybyte of instance) then a single dot “.” and then a special code for the required panel

an example would be to create a folder named:


opening this folder will open the master control panel ( or the godmode as the guy that originally discovered it calls it).

There are also some other modes and hidden settings, I have came up with a method to create them all in one go. You can read more about it in the post : Unlocking all hidden settings & godemodes in windows 7 in the forums

have fun, and remember, it will break down eventually.
