The Ultimate Windows 10 Secret: God Mode

Wednesday, December 16th, 2015 by | Filed Under: Uncategorized

One of my least favorite things about the otherwise awesome Windows 10, is that your settings are split between a settings panel…


and the old-fashioned control panel.


It can be confusing to know where to look make changes and there are sometimes redundant settings. But there is a way around it.

Most of you don’t know about the “God Mode”. It’s a feature provided in last three versions of Windows that provides unlimited powers to the users having administrator access to their PC. In God Mode, users can tweak the core settings of their PC.

To enter God Mode, “right click” on the desktop, go to “New” and then click on “Folder” from the list.


Rename the folder with this text.

                                             My Own Mode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}           

The text before the period ( . ) sign can be changed as you prefer. After renaming the folder, you will see a new icon with the name you specified. Double-clicking that file will lead you to all the available settings.

    Love this tip; thanks!

  2. Doreen F. says:

    A very helpful tip but some people may be offended by calling it “God Mode”.

    • dadeyo77 says:

      They can call it whatever they want if “God Mode” is offensive. That term, I believe, is typically taken from some games where going into “God Mode” allows you to have unlimited access, lives, resources, etc., within the game. Kind of a monster cheat code.

    Great tip!
    This fixes one of the biggest problems with Windows 10.
    It would be nice if I didn’t need a “cheat code” to have easy access to such things on my OS but I guess that’s the price we must pay for living in a dumbed down society.

    Great tip, very helpful indeed… Thanks a lot.

  9. Dave Baker says:

  10. Christine says:

    I must be missing something. What do you do after you make the new folder and open it up????????????????

  11. Lanita says:

    Oh my gosh! I think I’m in love! This is wonderful!

  12. Phyllis Hedding says:
