How to enable God Mode in Windows 10

To enable God Mode in Windows 10, a user should have an account with administrative privileges. Go to the desktop and create a new folder. Right-click on the open area in desktop, select the “New” on the context menu and then click the “Folder” command. The new folder will be automatically created.

After that, rename the folder as

GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

One can rename the folder by any other name, replace “GodMode” in the above text with whatever name you choose to name the folder. The characters that follow, though, should remain the same. If the term “GodMode” is removed without adding any text in its place, then an error displaying a wrong file name would appear.

Once the folder is created and renamed in the above way, one will notice the folder icon change to a control panel icon. Double-click the icon to open the newly-created God Mode. The major categories given would be organized alphabetically with detailed settings that are associated with those categories.

With the God Mode folder, one can easily access any major admin settings and change it immediately. While the folder is certainly handy for getting to know the official names of all Windows tools, it is also a faster way to look for them rather than looking for in the Start menu. The God Mode folder offers a quick introduction to all tools and is a great way to look for admin tools efficiently.
