How to Activate Godmode in Windows 10

The last three versions of Windows has a hidden feature called Godmode, which is still available in Windows 10. Essentially, Godmode is a folder containing links to all settings on the Windows system. This is particularly useful for Windows 10 users since some settings and controls are more accessed through the new Settings menu while others can be more easily accessed through the old Control Panel. Plowing through both the Settings menu and Control Panel searching for a particular setting can get tiring. In Godmode, you will have access to all of Window’s control panels (more than 40 of them) from within a single folder.


  1. 1
    Log into Windows 10 on your account that has Administration privileges. This is important since you cannot make the changes outlined below if you do not have Administration privileges.
  2. 2
    Right-click (or tap and hold) anywhere in your Windows 10 desktop. A context menu pops up.
  3. 3
    Create a new folder. Hover the mouse cursor on (or tap) “New” from the context menu, and then select (by clicking or tapping) “Folder” on the next menu that appears.
  4. 4
    Copy this: GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}. Just highlight what is written in italics and press CTRL+C. Alternatively, you can highlight it then right-click the highlighted portion and choose “Copy” from the context menu that appears.
  5. 5
    Rename the folder you created on your desktop. Go back to your desktop and right-click (or tap and hold) the “New Folder” that you created. Then choose “Rename” from the context menu that appears. You will see the name “New Folder” highlighted.
    • Press CTRL+V to paste what you have copied earlier into the space for the folder’s name, and then press the Enter key. That’s it. You have enabled Godmode. Notice that the icon changes from a folder icon to a settings icon. Double-click or double-tap the icon to have access to all kinds of Windows 10 settings.


  • You don’t have to name the folder “Godmode.” You can name it “AllSettings” or any other name you like. Just replace the “Godmode” before the period with “AllSettings” as follows: AllSettings.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}. Just be sure you do not change or erase the bracket or anything within the brackets.
