Windows 2012 God Mode

As a Windows administrator it can be a pain to get used to the new Windows 2012 graphical user interface (GUI). One thing i really dislike is trying to get to the Windows Update feature while being connected to the server via a VMware Remote Console. For some reason the mouse cursor won’t show me the slide bar with useful tools. The windows-key on my keyboard will get me into the wrong desktop and it can get tough to get to the right tools. One simple way of getting to the right tools is by creating a folder named: God Mode.

How to activate God Mode in Windows 2012?
1. Start Windows Explorer.
2. Open a folder where you would like to place the God Mode tools.
3. Create a new folder and name it: GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

Now you will the the icon of the folder being changed.GodModeIcon And when you open the new folder, you will see the tools you want including the Windows Update tools.
