This is an article I found on Fred's Head, and may expedite or enhance
access to certain parts of windows 7 and possibly Vista as well.

Quickly Access Settings and Features with the Windows 7 GodMode

Posted: 04 Jan 2010 09:14 AM PST

Who wants to navigate through tons of menus and links to find the
various settings and cool features in Windows 7? Because it's so
different than Windows
XP, many users get lost when trying to find settings that used to exist
in the Control Pannel.

"GodMode", a term devised by the Microsoft development team, which
provides a single place to access all Windows settings without needing
to browse options
and folders in the Control Panel may be an easier way for blind and
visually impaired users to find what they need more quickly.

To use it:
list of 3 items
1. Create a new folder in a convenient place like the Desktop.
2. Rename the folder to GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
(note that you can change the "GodMode" text, but the following period
and code
number are essential).
3. The folder icon will change, double click it to show the GodMode window.
list end
The trick appears to work on both the 32 and 64-bit versions of Windows
7. Vista 32-bit and Windows Server 2008 32-bit should also work.
However, it is
known to crash 64-bit versions of Vista, you may need to boot in safe
mode or to the command line to delete the folder.
