    A nice way to list all Control Panel tasks in Windows Explorer - WinGeek - Windows 7 All Tasks. Some people have been incorrectly calling this "God Mode". All this does is expose a shell folder no new features or settings.

    Note: Also can be used with Vista.

    I think this has been mentioned previously, but you can also access this complete list from within Control Panel by simply typing an "s" (without the quotes) in the "Search Control Panel" box (at least in Windows 7 - I'm not sure about Vista).

    That worked perfectly on Vista, thanks for the tip.

    What a long list!

    There has been mention of "god mode" breaking vista 64bit systems. It throws users into an endless IE stop start loop. Cant even boot into safe mode. I had to walk a user Named Jan in Australia through deleting it from a command prompt.

    The descriptions that I've seen of the problem in 64-bit Vista say it is a Windows Explorer abort. If you create the shell folder in another folder instead of the root of your boot drive you can at least open Windows Explorer without the abort.

    Rebel, thanks. Here I am first time at the lounge and already reaping the harvest. When I saw s worked in Control Panel search I immediately delete the long entry for All Tasks. Phil
