How To Easily Enable God Mode In Windows 

'God Mode' is the Windows Master Control Panel shortcut, a special folder in Windows that contains over 200 tools (depending on the operating system). These tools are usually in Control Panel, however, God Mode contains all tools and settings in one place. The God Mode folder contains features such as Device Manager, Task Manager, Disk Defragmenter, various settings, troubleshooters and more.

Enabling God Mode allows you to quickly open these settings and tools without having to look for them in different places. God Mode is rather like a quick access folder. It is available in Windows 10, and also earlier versions such as Windows 8 and Windows 7. God Mode differs in each version of Windows and, therefore, the God Mode folder contains a different number of corresponding tools and settings. For example, Action Center is available in the God Mode folder for Windows 7 & 8, whereas it is not in Windows 10. Nevertheless, the most common settings and tools should be found in all Windows versions.

The God Mode folder might be useful for IT users, advanced users who need frequent access to many tools and settings, or simply those who like to have features in one place. In this article, we show how to create a God Mode folder in Windows 7, 8 or 10 by performing a few simple steps.

First, create a new folder anywhere you wish (we suggest the Desktop). Do this by right-clicking on Desktop empty space (or any other empty space), and the contextual menu will appear. Now, select "New" and then "Folder". Do not use a folder that already contains any files, because these files will be hidden and you will not be able to access them while God Mode is enabled.

Name the newly created folder "GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}". We chose "GodMode" only as an example - you can use any name you prefer. This is simply a formality that helps you to identify the folder - the important part is the dot, numbers and letters that follow. The Control Panel icon will appear, the 'random' numbers and letters will be gone, with only the folder name remaining.

Note that God Mode is not the only tool that allows access to hidden or special functions and features. Every setting, feature or tool can be found elsewhere in Windows, God Mode simply makes it easier and faster to access these features if you need them regularly (if at all).

If you are running Windows Vista, you can access God Mode, but only on 32-bit versions. If you are not sure which type of operating system you are running, this article will help you to find out.

If you want to delete the God Mode folder, you can do this as you would any other folder or file (by right-clicking it and selecting "Delete"). This will not affect your operating system. We hope that this guide was useful to enable God Mode in Windows 7, 8 and 10 and to allow access to settings, tools and features in just a few clicks.
