    It will turn into a super Control Panel with a variety of functions organized by group. You can rename it if you think it is blasphemous.

    Just to add to this it doesn't have to be on the desktop it can be any where on the system, if like me you don't like things on the desktop create the folder in My Document for example.

    It's the bracketed number not the 'Godmode' which activates the command. I put it inside a folder ON the desktop, and then created a desktop taskbar, so not only do I see the file as a cascading menu, but when hovering on it, all the options cascade out, so I never have to click on the title, can instead just scroll down the happily-alpha list to what I want to do. Takes up less desktop space.

    Frankly, 'Godmode' is a good title to preserve, which makes it easy to find on the internet. Probably makes God smile. (If you were God, you wouldn't have an ego problem and would never be offended, right?)

    When made as a toolbar it looses division by thematics and with higher res and smaller fonts it's more difficult to pick. Not using too much so desktop space and/or Start menu where is a good place for it.
