It won’t get you legions of followers willing to part with their hard-earned cash, or grant you the ability to throw lightning bolts, or turn lead to gold or anything, but there is an Easter Egg that has been uncovered in Windows 7 that implements a “GodMode”.

It’s all in the name. By simply renaming a folder in Windows Explorer with a specific string of text, the folder will instantly be transformed into a Control Panel of sorts with access to a diverse array of configuration settings that weren’t previously available.

It won’t make you a god, but it will grant you more god-like control of your Windows 7 environment.
