How to Enable God Mode on Windows 10, 8, and 7

What is God mode?

If you’re a longtime Windows user, you’ve probably heard of God Mode. In fact, GodeMode is called Shortcut Windows Master Control Panel.

GodMode is a special folder on Windows that gives you access to more than 200 tools and settings that are usually hidden in the Control Panel and other windows and folders. When activated, God Mode allows you to do everything, like quickly open the drive defragmenter, view event logs, access Device Manager, add Bluetooth devices, format hard drive partitions, update drivers, open Task Manager, change desktop settings, customize the mouse, hide file extensions, change font settings, rename files, and much more.

For users who want to dig deeper into Windows 10/8/7 or simply want to learn and discover more new features on Windows, they can use God Mode. This is a mode that helps users dig deeper into the operating system and can display settings that are not visible on Windows. In the article below, the network administrator will show you how to enable God Mode on Windows 10, 8, and 7.

Note on Windows 8: If you get just a new folder with numbers and letters in it, you can delete that new folder and recreate it on Windows Explorer (lower left) and change the settings under the View tab of Windows Explorer. Then double-check the boxes, file extensions, names, and hidden ones.

If you do not want to activate God Mode manually, you can download some of the programs below to your device and install them. Programs that will enable God Mode on your Windows 8 and Windows 7 computers are:

  • God Mode Maker
  • MyGodMode

Note when activating God Mode on Windows

  • Windows XP does not support God Mode.
  • You need to create a new folder; do not use an existing folder (containing other files and subfolders). Because after turning into a God Mode folder, all files and folders in it will be hidden, and during God Mode’s work, you cannot access those files and subfolders.
  • You cannot use Windows Explorer to rename the God Mode folder to the original folder, but must use the Command Prompt at the location where the God Mode folder was created and use the following command to rename the folder you want, for example, Thewindowsfan:
ren "God Mode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}" Thewindowsfan
  • The word “God Mode” in the folder name can be changed to anything you want; it’s only meant to help you identify what the folder is, as long as the “God Mode” part is exactly the same as you see above.
  • The folder icon will change to the Control Panel icon, and the characters after “GodMode” in the name will disappear.
