How to Enable and Access "GodMode" in Windows 7
February 21, 2010
GodMode is a hidden system control panel in Windows 7 that lets you access all the operating system's control panels from within a single folder without the need to browse options and folders in the Control Panel. To access "GodMode" follow these steps:
- Create a new folder on your desktop (or on one of your drives).
- Rename the folder to this:
- The folder icon will change to a GodMode folder. Double click it to open the GodMode window.
The GodMode window has nearly 50 sections that give you quick links to Windows configuration options. The name "GodMode" was a name given by Microsoft developers, but other than a cool name, it's really just one huge list of configuration options that you can easily access within one window. You can actually get to all the options elsewhere in Windows 7 by browsing through other screens or from the Control Panel.
