    I use GodMode on my W7 system and decided to give it a try on W8.
    It gives immediate access to a large number of tweaks and hidden settings.
    I have not tested them all so use with care and have back-up in case of differences encountered between 8 & 7.
    to use create a folder on the desktop name it


    the folder icon will change to that of a control panel.
    Just open it and you have access to over a hundred hidden settings.

    Yep, it is handy. In addition, this may be an easier method to create the "Control Panel All Tasks" (GodMode) shortcut with in Windows 8 as well.
