Windows 7 God Mode

1 Comment


This is one of the best hacks or tricks that I have seen in a long time. Coming from JKontheRun the trick allows you to have all the options to control your PC with Windows 7 in one folder. Is not that cool?

God Mode is easy to set up too, just do this:

  • Create a new folder anywhere.
  • Rename the folder by pasting this name exactly as it appears (copy it first):
  • GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

20 tips and tweaks for W7

Leave a comment


Computer World has updated a very good article with 20 tips and tweaks for Windows 7, if you have a browser “Popup proven” this is an article that I would recommend to read.

An earlier version of this story was written when Windows 7 was still in beta. Now that the final version has been released, we’ve overhauled the story, updating some tips, eliminating others that are no longer relevant, and adding seven new tips.

Playing DVIX in 7MC

No, this is not a “how to” note or anything like that. Windows Media Center for me is something completely new. I have been using UMPCs and Tablet PCs for the last 3 years and on them this program does not work to well so I never tried. And probably that’s the best thing that happened to me because my first encounter with MC has been with 7MC or Windows 7 Media Center. A version of MC totally renovated by Microsoft. Sponsored by Ruvo, I will be shooting short videos of 7MC showing how easy is to use this program and different options that you can enjoy on it.   The first video of this series shows how easy is to navigate using a Microsoft MC Remote Control and play a DIVX file stored in the HDD.

Mac OS X is not much better than W7

I’m not the one saying it, he is Walt Mossberg, the man behind the Personal Technology Column of The Wall Street Journal.  And here is exactly what he said:

In recent years, I, like many other reviewers, have argued that Apple’s Mac OS X operating system is much better than Windows. That’s no longer true. I still give the Mac OS a slight edge because it has a much easier and cheaper upgrade path; more built-in software programs; and far less vulnerability to viruses and other malicious software, which are overwhelmingly built to run on Windows.

Now, however, it’s much more of a toss-up between the two rivals. Windows 7 beats the Mac OS in some areas, such as better previews and navigation right from the taskbar, easier organization of open windows on the desktop and touch-screen capabilities. So Apple will have to scramble now that the gift of a flawed Vista has been replaced with a reliable, elegant version of Windows.

Since the first beta I have been saying that this version 7 is the best thing Microsoft has released in a long time so it does not surprise me to read such comment coming from Walt Mossberg. Now prepare yourself for the Mac fanboys reactions we will have a lot of fun in the next few days.

Microsoft has confirmed the release of Windows 7 this years according to news published at CNET

"We are tracking well to a Windows 7 holiday," Microsoft Senior Vice President Bill Veghte said in an interview. Veghte plans to make a similar statement in a speech Monday at Microsoft’s TechEd event in Los Angeles

Well, even when it was not official I think that many of us knew that. W7 RC is already a product almost ready for being released to the market and there was not any way that Microsoft would had kept W7 in RC status for 7 more months.
