This comment pops up on many similar forums. IMO it is a little unfair. Sometimes, I would agree, the article is so long and detailed, a link would be more expiditious.
However, I am sure most users come on a site such as this for information, not for a link to another site. Whilst noone can dispute that Brinks tutorials are absolutely superb, it is not quite so easy to search, using the known text, for an article altready published.
The OP, in sincerity, wished to pass on some information which he felt would be usful to other members. If he searched on these pages for "God mode" , I doubt he would find it.
Hints and tips in the use of software, are not, and can never be, copyright. They are free for anyone to find. There are some "authors" around the web at the moment, who are, in spite of that, claiming copyright for long documents/E books they have produced. (Brink is not one of those!) I find that often, it is easier to copy and paste someone elses work when offering help, but I do have a huge Dbase of such, which I can also quote from. Rarely can anyone provide original work of this nature, particulæalry as most customisation, etc. has been inherited from Vista, which has been around a while now.
Fwiw, I reproduced the tip mentioned here, from a long lost article, several years ago, on another (Vista) site. It may even have been from Microsoft's own pages.
Happy new year to you also, Nburnes.,

I agree with your statements, but to further lessen complications with external sourced articles, and their authors, which, if they have written the article their own way with their own words, be it even about common knowledge tips, that article is still theirs. It's still best to follow the guidelines here.

God mode for Win 7

copy/paste the following text as the name of a folder: GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

create a new folder and rename it
Be sure to include the word "GodMode" as well as the remaining text
Pretty cool and not sure if anyone has mentioned this on the forum before.
