windows 7 tweakers recently uncovered a hidden shortcut that grants users access to all of the os's configuration settings in one unified window..

by creating a new folder in windows 7 and renaming it with a certain text string at the end, users are able to have a single place to do everything from changing the look of the mouse pointer to making a new hard-drive partition.

to get to this secret dashboard, create an empty folder and rename it to...

godmode.{ed7ba470-8e54-465e-825c-99712043e01c}

once that is done, the folder's icon will change to resemble a control panel and will contain dozens of control options
