FEATURES TIPS & TRICKS Enable Windows 10's Hidden "God Mode"

This is a very useful entry....easy to access and easy to create. Works perfectly on Win7 as well.

As noted by enthusiasts around the web, there is a simple way to access a hidden "God Mode" in Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and Windows 10. With a name like that, your expectations might be a little high -- and no, Windows is not secretly invincible -- but the trick is awesome nevertheless.

"God Mode" simply provides users with a centralized Control Panel for all of Windows' settings, from changing your desktop background to setting up a VPN or partitioning your hard drive. In all, there are nearly 50 categories and most have several entries.

It's almost comical how simple it is to access it. Simply, create a new folder -- anywhere is fine, I created one on my desktop -- and rename that folder to:

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

That has been embedded into explorer.exe for a long time, the GUID keys are shortcuts to various modes that are used with debugging windows and applications etc

Quick access to components like themes makes it easier for designers to test components or to select new ones as desired
