One comment has revealed what this is. See for something which sounds all too much like this, without the GUI, and free. And old.

DL and installed without a problem (IN VMP). A lot going on. I can't comment on it communication with outside sources. But I don't see any short cuts. So you have to open the software each time to do something.

Whether you need this kind of software or not I give much respect to GOTD for putting it up.

For years I used Ultimate Windows Tweaker. It lets you set up your context menu so you can go to 'god mode' with just a click.

I opened the portable version and my mouse disappeared. I had to restart the PC to get it back. I don't find useful this program. I'll delete it.

Lost my comment. I shall try again.

After reading the posts I am reluctant to install this app. If it must connect to the Techygeek website to run, what will happen when the website is sold? I gave them my email address because I don't have a facebook account. Head slap. I'll bet they've collected a lot of email addresses.

Many questions arise when a software stays connected with home base:

a) Why?
b) What info is being sent home?
c) Could there be key logger recording your key strokes when banking?
d) Why it can not be disabled?

Therefore, I will stay away from it.

Hi Maria. :-)

Maria, I just tried the portable under Vista SP2 32-bit and the connection is not continuous...
The domain it connects to is not the one up for sale as mentioned by others in earlier comments.
If it realy refuses to run if denied the right to do the update check then it's a bug or design flaw if intentional.
I hope this clears up the fears uncertanty and doubt :)

Looks like they have also put this on SourceForge:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/ultimatesettingspanelpro/

The exe file is dated 6/12/2016. The program shows Version 4.2 - June 2016.

Reply   |   Comment by johnny  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

johnny, the giveaway shows v3.1 sep 2015

johnny,
This later version is also a "Lite" version...... Check them out side by side.

Reply   |   Comment by Nigel  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

johnny, well spotted, can't see the point of distributing ancient V3.1 when it's really up to V4.2... what's the point reporting the bugs in V3.1 when it's been long obsoleted!

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

johnny, in case you hadn't tried 4.2 on SF it works, still does the auto-update check but if it is blocked by firewall or no internet is available the GUI then apears after a short delay without complaining about not being able to connect to server. 4.2 displays itself as Lite version instead of Pro but can't see any significant difference, both mostly provide buttons to launch various microsofts own control applets. There are no settings to tell it where our own chrome or firefox compatible browsers reside, so if they are used portably the tool cannot see them.
Most of the so called Windows 7 and 8 tab buttons work just fine in Vista... the windows version specific nature is mostly meaningless, only a few buttons failed to launch due to Vista not having the required applets, the rest launch just fine.

Looks like the portable version Always CHECKS THE WEBSERVER. So in 24 hours its going to fail. dissapointing.... Deleted.

Reply   |   Comment by Mememe  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+9)

Mememe, and the installed version also connects to the server every start or it fails.... I dont need these sort of apps getting in the way of my system security measures.... Such a simple looking app, with big brother web connections.... I'll never spend anything on software that works in this way: The Net is down... Can't use my PC to do shit. No thankyou.

Reply   |   Comment by Mememe  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+21)

Mememe, do you suppose it connects to the server to check for minor updates?

Reply   |   Comment by Pushmataha  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-8)

Pushmataha, if it were simply checking for minor or major updates it would not be a mission critical thing! The fact the program ceases to function if it's denied a connection implies it is significantly more than a program update check connection.

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Mememe, I agree with you. I dislike apps that have to connect to the Internet to work. I want to control all connections and I work off-line many times so this program, even though it sounds good, won't work for me. Thanks for letting all of us know that the program has to connect to the Internet to work.

This software is over 12 months old - the file modified date is August 2015.

But it runs without problems, and does look useful.

Also, if you miss the GOTD offer, it's free on their website too: http://blog.techygeekshome.info/download/ultimate-settings-panel-pro/

I have tried many ways to get this program to run but receive the error "The remote server returned an error: (403) Forbidden". I've tried turning off Avast Internet Security. It's been installed and run as admin as advised on their web page. The portable file also gives the same error. I running Windows 10 which is listed as compatible.

I have sent an email to the web site asking for assistance. Anyone else have this problem?

It looks like a nice prog. but I will wait with downloading untill someone let´s me know why the win 8-tab is for win 10.

Reply   |   Comment by nissepelle  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-9)

Because they are the exact same settings

Reply   |   Comment by Martin Harran  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

Martin Harran, This is a bit confusing. Does it mean that ALL settings are the same for win 8 and win 10? I thought new stuff was added in win 10. How can win 8 config. new stuff in win 10 that coulden´t be found in win 8?
Ok, if the win 8 tab also is for win 10 I think the tab should say: WIN 10/8.

I like that it includes god mode but anyone can make this folder by creating a folder on the desktop and rename it
God.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

You must include the period and
.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
but can call it anything

ilikefree, yes-unless You are using Vista 64-bits versions ;) (in that case You would end up with another mode-not ''God''). Martin Harran-ok,You are not using Firefox,but I don't understand why that tab is so ''important''!? Just skip it,and that's it.Removing that tab isn't improvement-it's opposite.All in all-handy tool,BUT- 1.some options don't work on windows 10 OS,and 2.StrayCat noticed something that's bothering me.I understand that for some options You need internet access,but it's little strange that program won't start if You are not connected!? It would be useful to read developers comment regarding this issue.Thank You StrayCat,as I didn't noticed that.

Useful set of shortcuts, one of the things I dislike about latest versions of Windows is the increasing requirement for multiple clicks to get to specific settings, this utility makes that easier.

Suggested improvements:

1 Add facility to remove/hide unwanted tabs e.g. I don't have Firefox installed

2 Make available as taskbar icon with option to start with Windows.

Reply   |   Comment by George  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-26)

Martin Harran, Have you tried right clicking the start button on Win 10? I always thought Win 10 was Win 8 with all the government snooping spyware added to send all info to a affiliate of the NSA. I mean why was it free unless someone else paid for it? Microsoft has never been known to give a operating system for free. If you want a task bar icon just right click the .exe program you want there and click pin to taskbar. Why would I want an icon to start program with windows? If you need to you can always Pin it to start menu.

Reply   |   Comment by nomadss1  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

nomadss1, Yes, I know about right click on Start button and use it far more than the conventional Start button. I also have "God mode" already set up and, as a developer, I have several folders on my taskbar with links to my most often used applications and utilities. This program, however, contains a lot of extra links in a handy central location that are not on tight click and not used often enough to justify taskbar shortcuts.

Reply   |   Comment by Martin Harran  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

George, I described the programme as useful and why I thought so; I also gave two suggestions to the devlopers as to how it might be improved. I guess we all have different ideas of what constitutes "useful"!

Reply   |   Comment by Martin Harran  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

Martin Harran, I went ahead and installed this it would been a nice program but for it to work you have to go online every time so nope this is not for me. I find having to go online for programs that don't need to go online as potential for backdoors and rootkits. He could inject anything at anytime. Nope Nope Nope.

To giveaway: please delete my previous comment. Thks.

Installed in windows10 64 bits
interesting program. Many Settings- not always easily accessible- in a single window. By cons I use Oulook 2016 and none of the Outlook configuration tabs works (no action on a click).
I think that an update would be welcome for windows 10.
A tab to disable the Microsoft Windows 10 spies will be a plus.

Thks Giveaway and TechyGeeksHome

And nor will it start if blocked by a firewall.

So, what is the main function of this program - to change local settings, or to phone home...

StrayCat,
In addition to your observation, the publisher's homepage above
TechyGeeksHome.co.uk
has no contact details or address, as a UK (& EU) company, this should be shown on the site so I'm not sure the address represents where they are from.
The product site tells you nothing about them and not really much anyway.
Not even bothering to go near this, just enable God Mode

It claims to have a portable version. I'm not sure how portable it is. I can not install it on my work computer as I don't have administrative rights. My understanding is that admin rights are only required when changes will be made in the registry. If it makes any changes to the registry then it is not a true portable program. I have installed other portable programs on this computer with no trouble. I will have to wait until I get home to try this on my home computer.

All settings in the same hand !

Windows 7 & 8 have a panel for each OS, but no one for Windows 10 ???

But Windows 8 is correct for Windows 10.

Useful to operate maintenance. A nice plus to combine with the freeware FixWin.

Thanks a lot
