Reveal most useful settings in Windows 7

Most useful here is subjective, but here is a quick way to create your own quick listing of common Windows 7 settings, including shortcuts, links to Control Panel items, etc. It’s definitely not an all-inclusive list, but it works, and it’s pretty cool.

Create a folder somewhere (desktop preferably until you see what it does). Right-click and rename the folder

.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

Note the period between and the unique identifier – very important! “Name of your choice” can be anything you want. Hit enter and voila! If anyone can explain this further feel free, but to me it just looks like a shortcut to a grouped list view of common settings.
