To the best of my knowledge, today’s tip will only work in Windows 7. So those of you who have yet to upgrade will have something to look forward to when you do upgrade.
Open Windows Explorer (not Internet Explorer) by pressing the Windows key + E. Click the New folder button. It will be given the name of “New folder”. Change the name to exactly what is written below:
Once you’ve done that, the folder will change to a shortcut to a special kind of Control Panel. Double click on the folder/shortcut and you’ll have access to hundreds of settings for all aspects of Windows. This “folder” will allow you to change most anything you want. I think this is one of the coolest Windows tips I’ve ever seen.
