Microsoft's Windows 10, the latest version of Windows Operating System, has been creating waves since it rolled out, and reached to 110 million devices within just 2 months.

If you are a long-time Windows user, you may remember a trick called, 'God Mode'.

God Mode is an inbuilt, but hidden feature of Windows that provides additional customization options for the operating system.

With Windows 10, all the Settings of the operating system are kept under Settings App, and categorized between System, Devices, Network & Internet, Personalization, Update & Security, Privacy and more.

Enabling God Mode, also known as 'Windows Master Control Panel Shortcut', in Windows 10 essentially unlocks a backdoor of the OS to access 260+ additional settings from a single folder.

How to Enable God Mode in Windows 10?

Follow the steps given below to enable the God Mode in your Windows 10:
  1. Create a new folder on your Windows desktop (New > Folder) and save it with the name: GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
  2. The folder's icon will change to an icon as of a Control Panel. Double-click on the new icon to see your universal settings panel.
  3. You can name the folder other than "GodMode"; before the Period (.).
  4. Now, click the folder, open it and get god-like access to more than 260 functions and tools.
Some functions are unique to Windows 10 while others are similar to the previous versions of Windows.
