Title: GodMode......
Post by: stanl on July 06, 2014, 06:42:22 am
I have shown co-workers how to create the GodMode folder on Win7.  I think it also works on Win8 which would make it easy to access stuff rather than using that obnoxious side bar. 
 
Can WB access the GodMode folder as a listview? I tried and got nowhere.  I did find the attached (C# dll and exe) that colorizes junction and mount points.

Apparently GodMode is nothing more than the "All Tasks" folder which centralizes a list with all Control Panel items. I don't think you will be able to access the shortcuts through the file system API, so you have to look for an API that list control panel applets. I am not aware of any way to accomplish this.

However the following can be used from a WinBatch script to launch the explorer with "All Tasks"

Code: Winbatch
Run("C:\WINDOWS\EXPLORER.EXE","shell:::{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}")

Stan, you had me going there for a second - until I remembered that this is a forum of and for gods.
