More GodMode Strings for Windows 7

Microsoft has revealed there’s more "GodMode" strings hidden within Windows. I hope there more impressive than what we’ve gotten so far.

But here’s a list of additional strings to try out. And "GodMode" can be replaced with any string you want, such as MyCoolFolder.{00C6D95F-329C-409a-81D7-C46C66EA7F33}

{00C6D95F-329C-409a-81D7-C46C66EA7F33}  – Enter a default locations. Boring
{0142e4d0-fb7a-11dc-ba4a-000ffe7ab428}  – Doesn’t do anything for me.
{025A5937-A6BE-4686-A844-36FE4BEC8B6D}  – Select a power plan. Boring
{05d7b0f4-2121-4eff-bf6b-ed3f69b894d9}  – Doesn’t work for me
{1206F5F1-0569-412C-8FEC-3204630DFB70}  – Store credentials for Automatic Logon. Boring
{15eae92e-f17a-4431-9f28-805e482dafd4}  – Install a program from the Network. Boring
{17cd9488-1228-4b2f-88ce-4298e93e0966}  – Chose the program that Windows uses by default. Boring
{1D2680C9-0E2A-469d-B787-065558BC7D43} – .NET Framework Assemblies. Could be interesting
{1FA9085F-25A2-489B-85D4-86326EEDCD87}  – Manage Wireless Networks. Ho Hum
{208D2C60-3AEA-1069-A2D7-08002B30309D} – Network and Sharing Center. Boring again
{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D} – A shortcut to My Computer? WTF?
{2227A280-3AEA-1069-A2DE-08002B30309D} – Shortcut to Printer. Yawn
{241D7C96-F8BF-4F85-B01F-E2B043341A4B}  – Manage RemoteApp and Desktop Connections. Boring
{4026492F-2F69-46B8-B9BF-5654FC07E423} – Windows Firewall. Clearly there aren’t enough shortcuts to that
{62D8ED13-C9D0-4CE8-A914-47DD628FB1B0} – Doesn’t work for me
{78F3955E-3B90-4184-BD14-5397C15F1EFC} – Rate and improve your computers performance. Need to run that every few minutes!

It’s not fully documented what all of these do yet, but give it a day as everyone scurries to be the first to try them out and declare how fabulously cool they are.

I tried them, can’t say any of them give me an overwhelming sense of power…

Windows 7 has lots of GodModes
