* For Ultimate versions only)

** May Slowdown your system

Warning: Trying some of the above shortcuts created problems in some machines running 64-bit Windows, please do take note of it particularly if your machine is Windows Vista 64-bit version based.

The procedure is same as I had posted earlier for GodMode setup,

Create an empty folder

Use the shortcut name that you want to give it, ex: “Network connections” followed by a period (.) following it should be the corresponding GUID shortcut code.

Networks connection GUID GodMode code

Renaming for Networks connection shortcut

Networks connection shortcut

You can try any of the above GUIDs following the same method.
