    GodMode toolbar


    Hi, it is possible to add toolbars to taskbar (like address, links, desktop etc. and new folder). It would be very handy if we could add godMode options likewise. is it possible?

    Hello zuu,

    If you like, you could create a Control Panel All Tasks (aka: GodMode) shortcut that can be pinned to the taskbar.

    Thanks for help, but I want ad it to toolbar not taskbar, because it would be much faster if I could explore GodMode items like folders.

    The Control Panel, All Tasks, and similar items apparently resist all attempts to convert them to toolbar form. However, you can get something like it this way. Add the "Desktop" toolbar if it isn't already there (right-click taskbar > toolbars > desktop). It contains "Control Panel" which cascades to the menu-like groupings, or to "All Control Panel Items" which in turn cascades to each item, and some of them cascade even further. You just have to move the mouse and hover in three or four places to reach the item you want. Just about everything in your system can be reached from that Desktop toolbar, including Recycle Bin, Libraries, Network, your User folder, and all drives, plus everything on your Desktop. And every folder in it will cascade through whatever chains of subfolders it may have.

    This works for me, just tried it on Windows 8 Pro X64. How to Activate GodMode in Windows 7

    What I can't do is make a Toolbar from it. Doesn't like the name

    GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

    The closest I can get it to create another folder and place GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C} in it as the only subfolder. Then make a new Toolbar pointing to the folder GodMode is in.

    I tried that and it works in my 8.0, but that toolbar is just one huge vertical list that goes way off the screen, so you have to scroll up and down like crazy. I like it better grouped into cascading subfolders so it all fits on the screen with no scrolling. But I can't find any way to make a toolbar of that kind for the GodMode thing, probably because it's a special kind of folder.

    On the toolbar, click the expansion arrows then double click the flyout and you're in!

    Edwin, please explain HOW you created the GodMode toolbar. I can get the folder but can't make a toolbar from it. That's the part I/we need.

    Also don't understand what this means:

    On the toolbar, click the expansion arrows then double click the flyout and you're in!
