Ever heard of a God Mode in Windows?

 

Windows God Mode

Windows God Mode

But what does it contain?

Windows God Mode

Windows God Mode

Alphabetical, quick and easy access to many common Windows Settings!

 

And how can I get it?

I’ve only tested this on Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10 – but it worked on all.

Create a folder on your C:\ drive and rename it to the following:

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

 

The folder will then morph into your new God Mode folder.
