I'm a bit confused.
From Nunos inital post, i thought this were some hidden feutures.
But from ericgl post above, it seems, that it's just an alternate way to call certain control panels.
Which is it?
It is both. (and - sorry to say so - it is not at all "news"
Basically it is an "almost normal" feature that someone "discovered" and had the idea of calling it "God mode" (indeed a marketing genius
The news - at the time (more than two years ago
) soon spread though, apart from the name, there is nothing particularly "god" and not even "good" about it.
Some of the early articles/notes about it:http://msbin.com/how...ows-7-god-mode/http://stadt-bremerh...dows-7-godmode/http://www.petri.co....ws-god-mode.htm
Every other week some "wannabegeek" re-discovers this feature and posts about it in a blog or in a forum, and the thingy goes on and on .....
This is a more "reasonable" explanation/definition:http://blogs.technet...-shortcuts.aspx
and this is the "official" version:http://news.cnet.com...odes-exclusive/http://howto.cnet.co...ows-7s-godmode/
