American multinational company Microsoft’s newest operating system Windows 10 has been creating waves since it was launched in July. The software comes with a lot of new features, including Cortana. In Windows 10, settings are split between the Control Panel and the Settings app. If you want to access all of the operating system’s control panels and settings from one place, you should enable GodMode.

GodMode is a hidden folder that lets you see all control panels in one place on Windows 10. The feature basically offers you access to the range of features on Windows and the customization options in a single interface. Besides, it sorts these features and options into different categories, for example, Administrative Tools and Display.

Luckily, it’s very simple to activate GodMode. Following are 4 steps that you can take to explore the hidden features, settings and functionality in Windows 10. It just takes you some minutes. Let’s check out now!

Step 1: Right-click on your computer desktop and create a new empty folder on it by selecting New and then Folder

Step 2: Rename this folder to exactly this (it’s best to copy and paste):

GodMode. {ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
You can name the folder anything you like by just replacing “GodMode” before the {….} characters to your liking. For example, you can name it PeterMode instead of GodMode.

It just takes you some minutes to enable GodMode in Windows 10 for quick access to all the settings and control panels.

Step 3: Hit the Enter button to create the folder with the above name. Then, the folder icon will resemble the Control Panel

Step 4: Double-click on the new icon to see around 40 different settings, including Devices and Printers, Work folder, User Accounts, Credential Manager, Windows Defender, Indexing, Windows Mobility Center, etc.  

That’s it! You see, it’s very easy to enable GodMode to unlock hidden features and functionality in Windows 10, isn’t it? Hope this works for you!
