God Mode in Windows 7

If you are interested in shortcut for functions in Action Center, the Network and Sharing Center, Power Options, Troubleshooting tools, User Accounts and other at one place then you will require Windows God Mode. 

The God Mode actually does not offers new features or expose new settings. It only list tasks that we have to otherwise search in Control Panel or Start Menu of Windows 7 or Vista.

The God Mode can be accessed in two ways:

Method 1:

Simply type in shell:::{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C} in the address bar of windows explorer. It will open up the windows named "All Tasks", where all the shortcuts for functions are listed. 

Method 2:

Create a new folder and rename it to GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}. As soon as you rename the folder the name part after dot will get disappear and also icon of the folder will also get changed like control panel. 

In both the methods, the name part after dot or colon, ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C, must be entered exactly as it is here, including the curly brackets.

The God Mode lists around 284 shortcuts in Windows 7, and 212 shortcuts in Windows Server 2008 R2. God mode even works with Windows Vista as well. But this trick is incompatible with Windows Vista 64 bit.  

It might happen that you may get trouble while trying this trick on 64 bit Windows Vista version, your explorer will restart again and again. If you face this proble then you can overcome this in two ways:

  1. Restart the computer in Safe Mode with command prompt option. This will give you flexibility of running command without opening explorer. Now on command prompt traverse to the directory where you have created the God Mode folder. Now type the command  RD /S /Q “GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}”. This will remove the specified directory. Now you can safely reboot your computer in normal mode.
  2. If you are able to access your computer from another computer then, go to another computer and browse to the location on your computer where you have created the God Mode directory and delete the GodMode folder.

Exception handling with RestTemplate

Spring framework offers RestTemplate for consuming RESTful services. Recently I used RestTemplate for consuming one of the third party RESTful service.
