By now, you should have upgraded to the FREE Windows 10 operating system for your PC that came out last week.


It's OK if you haven't.  When you do, be sure you have good a good backup of your data to play it safe.

Windows 10 is a great new version of Windows.  It's what Windows 8 should have been.  But with many new improvements and features. Best of all, the Start button is back.  We'll do some Cool Tips for Windows 10 in the coming weeks.

But the very best Cool Tip for Windows 10 is GodMode. This hidden system control feature is for both general users and geeky sysadmins.  It brings all of the system settings into one all-powerful settings screen.

To invoke GodMode:

1. Right-click on your desktop and select New Folder.
2. Type in or "copy and paste" the following as the new folder name, exactly as shown:
3. Hit Enter and the folder icon will change to GodMode.

4.  Open the folder to access all Windows 10 settings.

That's it.  All of the system settings are in one place.

The new GodMode settings window can be moved around your desktop and directory like any other folder so you can make it convenient to access in the future.

As always, be careful when making system changes and only make changes when necessary.
