It' s summer, you're bored enough to start reading random newsletters and then you pick up something useful.
...this incidentally also works on Windows 7.
Godmode worked in Vista too and everyone was all wound up about it but after that I haven't met a single person that actually ever used that feature.
In Windows 7 and 8 it's so much faster to just use search to find functions.
Searching essentially requires you to already know what you want to find (or at least how to reference or describe it) - but you're right about this probably having a high gimmick factor and a low comeback factor after the initial surprise.
It's still cool that this slipped in on Vista and still lives on in Windows 8 :)
Thank you. Handy one
