The problem with adding things to the right click menu is that it has been known to foul things up where it is missing items or some no longer function or adds lag to the right click menu. I mean it's nice to have a huge right click menu rather than just have things on any other one of a thousand menus available but if your waiting a few minutes for the menu to show up is it really worth it ?

An example of function, MagicIso use to have a right click function that would hose using right click explorer in the start menu. 

ContextMenuHandlers\MagicISO]
@="{DB85C504-C730-49DD-BEC1-7B39C6103B7A}"

And Godmode, well we know why that was ditched, because it can cause certain systems to crash, well that's handy

there's been 1 since Windows 95 by StarDock that was originally called the same thing then shortened to just 'RightClick' for the XP version then did away with it because of the Vista shift+rightClick trick

I smell legit patent infringement.

Windows7 you can already do all of this except whatever "desktop godmode" means & 't's tricky but possible to open command prompt @ a given directory

 

I only need 1 good way to do something with 1 or 2 back\hard\long ways for hardware or security emergencies

why do any of us need this..? especially if really was hijacked from SD

yeah because I pay less than $90 per year to get every utility I ever need as an upstart IT/computer-building business & gamer/enthusiast & the company has been a key player in NT Kernel platforms from the beginning not just Windows either

Impulse:  the reason steam started having weekly discounts & sales

MyColors:  the reason HP & Dell have theme customizable laptops etc.

 these guys had a hand in the aero 2.0, the ribbon & a lot of the user customization in Windows

 Can someone tell me why in all of the great maker's creation this took so long to come out?

I've been wishing for a feature like this since windows98!

This should have been a power toy, if not integrated into the OS itself. I just thank these people for finally making it. Wish it were better XP integrated. I'd really like to remove that annoying "send to" I've never used but keep hitting by accident.

What is 'Desktop God Mode', also, where is the link to the developer's site?

Well, God Mode does me no good as the one in the app seems to be for Win7 only, and I'm still on Vista x64.  Although we do have a God Mode for Vista x64:

explorer.exe shell:::{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
