Windows 7 God Mode

I got an information from one web site about Windows 7 God Mode..

Although its name suggests perhaps even grander capabilities, Windows enthusiasts are excited over the discovery of a hidden "GodMode" feature that lets users access all of the operating system's control panels from within a single folder.

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.

The trick is also said to work in Windows Vista, although some are warning that although it works fine in 32-bit versions of Vista, it can cause 64-bit versions of that operating system to crash.

To enter "GodMode," one need only create a new folder and then rename the folder to the following:
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. I'm not sure it's my idea of playing God, but it is a handy way to get to all kinds of controls.

Can anyone please give some more details about this... Becuase i couldnt see Microsoft say this as a feature.. so is it safe to do???

Answer
There is no GodMode, you create a new folder which points to a special destination (copntrol panel option). This is possible for over 10 years ;)

Create a folder surprise.{ED834ED6-4B5A-4bfe-8F11-A626DCB6A921} and click on it. What do you get? The Personalization page. As you can see this is nothing special.
