Make Windows 7 GodMode easier to manage

Windows 7 GodMode lists 278 settings in a single window. We'll show you how to wrangle those settings to make them easier to look through and manage.

Windows 7 GodMode is a super cool hidden developer shortcut that allows you to tweak a huge number of Windows settings from a single place. The problem is, they're listed in a single window--all 278 of them. Scrolling through them all can be a bit unwieldy. Here's how to wrangle those settings so you can manage them easier:

Step 1: Launch GodMode in Windows 7. To enable GodMode , just create a new folder and name it,
