This is a Vista trick also. Very handy.

just a friendly warning - do _NOT_ try this on a 64bit vista. it will log into an endless explorer crash cycle.

Interesting .. Sounds like a fun thing to put into a Zip archive to me... :devil:

Tried this on Win 7 Professional 64bit and Explorer shuts down and restarts on it's own whilst viewing the God directory :twak:

Just tried on my wife's Vista Ultimate 64 (not like I'm going to try it on MY box)... :D

No problems.. works like a champ.

This happened to me. Not fun. I had to learn a little DOS and start up under a command prompt to delete the folder. Even safe mode didn't work anymore.

I'm using Win Vista 64 ultimate.

I don't really understand it - isn't it just as quick to open the control panel?...and why would you need such 'instant' access to things that you'll barely ever need to change?

The control panel only has a handful of things readily available without having to dig though a pile of other windows.


...and why would you need such 'instant' access to things that you'll barely ever need to change?
For some, sure. This would just be one of those 'geek' things to play with. But for quite a few people like me that use their system to develop software, it's quite handy to have and yes - it is used all the time.

Just a matter of preference I guess.
