Enabling God Mode in Windows from your K1000

Here is a handy trick than can assist administrator or power user in their day to day life.

In Windows Vista and above there is a hidden God Mode that can be enabled to give access to all of the configuration links and control panel items that seem to be strewn about.  (Especially in Windows 8 and 8.1!)

You can simply create a new folder and then rename it to GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C} manually. Or, better yet, create a kscript to enable this on needed machines.

It is very simple to do. First create a new kScript and set it to "Online kScript". Target Windows operating systems only, and then choose your desired targets through smart labels or individually.

Next, create a new task with the following parameters

Verify a directory exists...
Paste "%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}" in the Directory: box

On Success
Log Message...
Type "Status"
Enter "God Mode Already Enabled"

Run a Batch File...
Script Name "God Mode ON"
Batch file: md "%USERPROFILE%\desktop\GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}"

Save your script and you are ready to go.

This can be especially helpful when creating and configuring images as the configuration options for the local system are all in one place.
