This is fucking old, and all these options are available in the vanilla control panel. The code is just a GUID, which you can replace with different ones that will give you different folders. It's nothing special, and has been posted so many times.

(or that just might be me :downs:)
I used to have [b]Facepunch.{ed7ba470-8e54-465e-825c-99712043e01c}[/b] on my desktop but then I realized that I never actually use it, so I removed it. Also, when this code is pasted somewhere, why does everyone use GodMode as the name?
I hate how this is now know as GodMode. Back in Vista everyone just called it Advanced Control Panel.

[QUOTE=AntonFTW;24359176] Also, when this code is pasted somewhere, why does everyone use GodMode as the name?[/QUOTE] It's due to the fact you have to enter a 'secret' code to get there, as if you were entering a code on a video game for cheats, ie GodMode.
Local security policy has far more interesting features.
[QUOTE=FalconKrunch;24455683]Local security policy has far more interesting features.[/QUOTE] That's because they're different things. The Advanced Control Panel here isn't anything new. Most of the links are redundant links to the same control panel file. Some just take you to the same one with a different tab selected. Also you can do this with any virtual folder that's enumerated and is defined in the registry. You can also do tricks with them. Such as pinning the control panel on Explorer's Navigation Pane. (If someone wants to know how just ask).
What's actually different and can you do anything you can't with the normal control panel?
Read the thread. No you can't, it just gives you shortcuts to tabs in the same window as the normal panel
This is news to me

Well then what's the bloody point?!
[QUOTE=BmB;24585150]Well then what's the bloody point?![/QUOTE] There isn't one. It just enumerates from the registry. You can do it with any special folder.
