God Mode Activated

What an awesome name for a desktop folder that you can "conjure" with a secret code!

Also known as the Windows Master Control Panel, this handy folder consolidates and groups most of the settings in Windows 10. God Mode first made its appearance as a feature in Windows 7. It is probably not suited for the average person, but power users, IT folks and most engineers will find it useful.

Here's how to enable God Mode:

  1. Make sure your account has administrator access
  2. Right-click on the Windows 10 Desktop and choose New --> Folder from the menu.
  3. Name the folder: GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

That's it. You should see the special icon shown above for this folder on your desktop. Open it up and explore. Yes, it's a bit anti-climatic, but still useful.
