Windows 8 has some hidden features, here I’m going to share about two “hidden folders” actually one folder begin its life with Windows 7 but still Microsoft people don’t like to release it to public.

  • Rename “New folder” to “GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}” without quotes.


Applications Folder

Applications Folder is the place, where Windows 8 displays all the applications, both Classical applications and Modern UI apps installed in your PC.
