How To Activate GodMode In Windows 10

With Windows 10, settings are split between the new Settings app and the old phasing out Control Panel. I like the convenience of having all the Windows commands in one place, but… Windows doesn’t apparently have that option, unless you enable GodMode.

GodMode is a hidden feature that, by enabling it, creates a dedicated folder that lets you have all available tweaks in one place. The GodMode feature offers users easy access to many features and customization options, all in a single interface. To make it easier, it also sorts them into categories, such as Administrative Tools and Display.

To activate GodMode simply create a new folder anywhere, although I suggest you’d do it on your Windows desktop, just for easy access, right-click > New > Folder and name it as indicated here:


You may rename “GodMode” to whatever you like (“SuperMode”, “IamCool”, “Whatever”…) just the part before the dot “.”
Everything after and including the dot must be exactly as indicated above.

Once you’ve created the new folder, press Enter on your keyboard and you’ll see the icon resembling the Control Panel. Here you’ll be able to do everything from adding clocks for different time zones to defragmenting your drives.

GodMode is also available on Windows 8 and Windows 8.1.
