By now, if you’re a hardcore Windows user, the trick that you we’re going to discuss here isn’t new to you, since this feature have existed since the last three major versions of Windows. GodMode, as we can see from the image above is what Microsoft name to a given folder where all settings and features of the entire Windows system known and unknown by many are listed, this gives access to different settings and tweaks inside the Windows operating system.

A blog over at RedmondPie shows just how to enable the sneaky “GodMode” feature for Windows then. As describe in the blog, here’s a run down on how it’s just easy it is to enable the said feature in Windows 10 and basically to the three major releases before the latest version of Windows.

Before anything else, make sure that you are logged-in with administrator privileges, otherwise these procedure won’t work depending how your user account is setup.

After clicking Folder from the options, a new folder will be create on the desktop with an option to rename that folder. From here, type the following of simply copy and paste this unique name as your desired name for the new folder that you have just created like so: GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

Step 3: Hit Enter to enable GodMode

After hitting the Enter key, you should see the new folder turned into something like this one shown below. Aside from the unique folder name, Microsoft also assigned a unique icon to specifically identify the GodMode folder.

Step 4: Browse through a plethora of options

Double click the GodMode folder and customized your Windows system to your heart’s content. There are more than 40 different categories of different settings you can customize from here but that would depend on how Windows is installed in your computer and what your current machine is capable with.

Thanks to Redmond Pie on refreshing our memory about this neat little feature on Windows.
