How To Activate "God Mode" on Windows

Windows God mode

Windows God mode puts an icon on your desktop that contains quick access to over 200 settings you might need. Windows God Mode originated with windows vista in 2007. It can be activated in windows 10 and Windows 11.

The God Mode menu is very simple to implement but can be a bit difficult to remember since it requires entering a long sequence of characters

To implement the God Mode icon on your desktop.
"up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A." No, wait. Wrong cheat code. Just follow these two simple steps.

*Right-click on your desktop and select Create Folder.

*Now name it: GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}, Now press Enter.

The folder icon will transform into what looks like a small control panel. Congratulations! You have activated God Mode!


Why God Mode?

God Mode is quite handy if you hate trying to navigate through the ever-changing Windows Control Panel a.k.a. Settings menu. God Mode gives you instant access to every control in Windows, including some you will not find in the regular Settings app, Some of these settings are well hidden.

Obviously, there are going to be tons of settings in the God Mode folder you will never use -- probably most of them -- but there are a few that frequently come in handy.
