[Trick] How to enable GodMode in Windows 10

GodMode, for those who don’t know, is a hidden functionality in Windows operating system that lets users access all of the operating system's control panels from within a single folder. This feature was first discovered in Windows Vista where by creating a new folder and renaming it with a certain text string at the end, users were able to have a single place to do everything from changing the look of the mouse pointer to making a new hard-drive partition.

In Windows 10 also, you can have such a folder using below steps:
  • Make sure your system account has administrative privileges
  • Right-click on the Windows 10 desktop and choose New > Folder
  • Name the folder: GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C} and hit enter/return to make it stick

Now when you open that folder, you can see around 40 different settings, including Devices and Printers, Credential Manager, Indexing, etc. Some variations exist depending if you have a Home or Pro version and different hardware.

This can be very handy in case you need to look for a setting quickly without searching around between new Settings app and legacy Control Panel.
