The “GodMode” is a hidden feature available only for Windows 7 and lets users access all of the operating system’s control panels (285 items available for me) from within a single folder.
To unhide the feature you have to create a new folder anywhere on your hard drive and simply rename it in
and the folder should changed from the default blank folder icon to a Control Panel looking icon.
Double click on the “GodMode” icon to open it up. It looks similar to the Control Panel window, with all options placed in list format. When you on a item you will be able to go straight to the adjustments.
Use the following VB Macro to delete empty rows:
‘ Sub Purpose: Delect all blank ROWS within the active cell’s
‘ Used Range
Public Sub DeleteBlankRows()
Dim dbMaxRow As Double, dbMinRow As Double, i As Double
Dim dbMaxCol As Double
Dim rng As Range
On Error Resume Next
‘only look in used area of the worksheet where active cell is
Set rng = Selection.Parent.UsedRange
‘calculate area to be searched for blank rows
dbMaxRow = rng.Rows.Count ‘# of rows in used area
dbMinRow = rng.Cells(1, 1).Row ‘1st row in used area
dbMaxCol = rng.EntireColumn.Count ‘# of columns in used area
For i = dbMaxRow To dbMinRow Step -1
If IsError(rng.Cells(1, 1).Offset(i – 1, 0).EntireRow. _
If rng.Cells(1, 1).Offset(i – 1, 0).EntireRow. _
SpecialCells(xlCellTypeBlanks).Count = dbMaxCol Then
rng.Cells(1, 1).Offset(i – 1, 0).EntireRow.Delete
Set rng = Nothing
Whenever you select to send a file by email using Windows Explorer Send To Mail option (right click on it and select Send To | Mail recipient) the email is automatically in plain text and additional text is included:
If you want to send the email in HTML automatically and remove the additional text from the email body you can use the solution offered by Microsoft “Outlook: Send To Mail Recipient opens an Outlook plain text message”. Unfortunately this solution allows you to attach only one file – too bad.
I had searched for a fix to this problem and I stumbled upon Stephen’s Scribble Pad describing how to replace the default MAPIMail link with a visual basic script file. Additionally the script includes the default signature:
Dim objArgs, OutApp, oNameSpace, oInbox, oEmailItem, olMailItem
Dim a, oAttachments, subjectStr, olFormatHTML
olMailItem = 0
olFormatHTML = 2
Set objArgs = WScript.Arguments 'gets paths of selected files
Set OutApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application") 'opens Outlook
Set oEmailItem = OutApp.CreateItem(olMailItem) ' opens new email
For a = 0 to objArgs.Count - 1
Set oAttachments = oEmailItem.Attachments.Add(objArgs(a))
subjectStr = subjectStr & Right(objArgs(a),Len(objArgs(a))-(InStrRev(objArgs(a),""))) & ", " 'recreates the default Subject e.g. Emailing: file1.doc, file2.xls
If subjectStr = "" then subjectStr = "No Subject "
oEmailItem.Subject = "Emailing: " & Left(subjectStr, (Len(subjectStr)-2))
oEmailItem.BodyFormat = olFormatHTML
Create a new text document and paste the above code and save the file. Rename the file to Mail Recipient.vbs and then create a shortcut and rename it to Mail Recipient or whatever name you like. Customize the shortcut’s icon (I use the default Outlook 2007 icon, found in Program Files) and move your new shortcut to your “Send to” folder (i.e. for Windows 7 C:\Users\Nicu\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo).
Rather don’t delete the original MAPIMail link, just change it’s attributes to hidden (you may want it back again later).
Most probably the the hibernation is not enabled, as hybrid sleep requires hibernation support to save the memory content to the hard drive.
Check if you have a file named hiberfil.sys in the root for your boot disk. If you don’t have it, hibernation is not enabled.
To enable it, run the command from an elevated command prompt:
powercfg.exe /hibernate on
If you want to change the large taskbar in Windows 7 to save allot of space you have to check the Use small icons option from Taskbar and Start Menu Properties
To do this, right-click on an empty space in the taskbar and click on Properties.
On the Taskbar tab, check the Use small icons box. Then click the OK button.
See below the comparison between large and small icons in the task bar.
