Invoke GodMode in Windows 10

Windows 10 Logo
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.

GodMode Windows 10
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.
Windows 10 GodMode -

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.

Interesting! Who wouldn't want something called "Godmode?" I have a Sony Vaio and Sony tells me that I shouldn't upgrade to Windows 10 until October or November when they will have new drivers. Oh well!

Whenever there is a major upgrade, waiting until the manufacturer says it's good to upgrade is prudent. Especially if it is a vital PC whose downtime will be a problem. GodMode is a useful tool to ensure that you've adjusted Windows 10 to your satisfaction. Waiting will just make you want it more! - RM

I still haven't gotten my copy of WIN10, I reserved a copy using my desktop app and no option for download still. I got an email from Microsoft saying that I may get it this week or in a few weeks, they were really vague.

Finally got my copy of Win10, apparently I had it the entire time but it never notified me that it was available, I had to right click the windows icon on my tray and go to updates and install it.

Ill try this once I do my win 10 install. Can I rename it Allah-mode? lol

Dont change the name of the folder at all or God disappears. folder name has to remain exactly GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
