How to Enable God Mode in Windows 10 , Windows 8, Windows 7

God Mode is a special folder in Windows that allow you to access more than 200 tools and settings that are normally tucked away in the Control Panel and other windows menu.

Once enabled, God Mode gives you the power to do all sorts of things, like quickly open the built-in disk defragmenter, format disk partitions, access Device Manager, view event logs, open Task Manager, change display settings, add Bluetooth devices, touchpad setting, adjust your mouse settings, update drivers, show or hide file extensions, change font settings, rename the computer, and a lot more.

The working of GOD MODE is really very simple. In just 2 steps you can use GOD MODE. Just name a new folder on your Desktop as given down below, and then instantly, the folder will turn into a super-handy place with shortcuts to change all of Windows settings.

How to Enable God Mode in Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7

The steps for Activating the God Mode is the same for Windows 10, Windows 8, and Windows 7:


Step 1. Make a new folder on the desktop.

To do this, right-click or tap-and-hold on any empty space on the desktop in Windows, and choose New > Folder.

Important: You have to make a new folder. Not just use an existing folder that already has files and folders in it. If you do this procedure on a folder that already has data in it, all of those files and subfolders will instantly become hidden, and while God Mode will work, your files will not be accessible at all.


Step 2. Now windows will ask a name for the folder, copy and paste given code into that folder name:

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

Note: The beginning “God Mode” text is just a custom name so that you can identify the god mode folder. You can change to whatever you wish to, but make sure the rest of the name is exactly the same as you see above.

The folder icon will change to the Control Panel icon and folder name will disappear.

  1. Double-click on this new folder to open GodMode.


What God Mode Is and Isn’t

God Mode is a quick-access folder full of shortcuts to control all the administrative tools and control settings on your desktop.

For eg, in Windows 10, to edit environment variables, you could do the log process, open Control Panel and then navigate to System and Security > System > Advanced system settings, or you could use God Mode to access the Edit the system environment variables option to reach the same place in a few fewer steps.

Don’t get any wrong idea that God Mode will give you any new features or options. There is nothing unique in God Mode. In fact, much like the example of the environment variable, every single shortcut found in God Mode is accessible somewhere in Windows options but you have to go through a long process to get those settings.

This means you don’t need God Mode enabled to do all of these tasks.  For instance, Task Manager can sure be opened quickly in God Mode but it works just as fast with the Ctrl+Shift+Esc or Ctrl+Alt+Del keyboard shortcut or simple right-clicking on the taskbar and selecting task manager.

Similarly, you can open Device Manager in a number of ways in addition to the God Mode folder, like in Command Prompt or via the Run dialog box or by right clicking on my computer.
