Windows GodMode is one of the best hidden features in Windows that has been helping us boost productivity and access all the things at a single place. Thankfully, Windows God Mode has trickled down all the way from the XP to the latest Windows 10. In this mode, all the controls over Windows are categorically curated in a single menu thus eliminating the need to navigate across multiple options to access the same. In a nutshell, the GodMode is an extensive Windows control hub, and something which shouldn’t be hidden as such.


We would guide you on how to activate the GodMode in Windows 10. So just follow the steps sequentially and we promise you it is not much of a task.

Enabling God Mode

The process to enable the GodMode is unchanged, so all you need to do is create a new folder on Windows 10 desktop and rename it with the text string inside the quotes “GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}”.


This will create a new icon called “GodMode” and clicking on that you will find access to a plethora of functions and tools which also includes some new features exclusive to Windows 10. In case a need for customized command arises, just drag and drop the commands to your desktop.


Another interesting fact is that you can change the name of the feature from “GodMode” to any custom name. This can be done by replacing “GodMode” by ‘custom name’. Please note that you need to use the period after the name for the code to work. In case you need to delete the feature simply click on the icon and delete it.


The GodMode for Windows 10 is said to offer 262 features which is a shade less than the 270 functions in Windows 8.1. Another aspect of the GodMode is that it doesn’t offer any new feature or setting option that is not available anywhere else on the operating system and just does the job of bringing together functions at a single place.


Personally, I have found this feature to be extremely useful as I don’t have to shifle shafle from one menu to another and instead can just access everything in GodMode. That being said, it sometimes baffles me on why Microsoft is not fine tuning the GodMode and start including it as one of the default features in the Windows versions.

Over to you now. Do you find Windows 10 GodMode useful? If so, what do you like about it, if not what changes you like to see? Do let us know through the comments section below.
