How-to Guide: Activating God Mode on Windows

-Advertisement-

What is God Mode? God mode is a hidden windows feature that compiles an array of functions into one menu. Using God mode, you will be able to perform everything from selecting clocks for multiple time zones to defragmenting your drives, all in one location. It is also quite easy to set up and use. God Mode in Windows isn’t just for power freaks. There are more than 200 administrative tools and settings that may be found in one place. All thanks to this God mode hidden feature.

God Mode was added in Windows Vista, and the majority of its options may be found in the Control Panel’s various areas. In Windows 10, Microsoft has relocated much of the functionality of the Control Panel’s setting options to the Windows Settings app. It still contains a number of useful options.

Because the Control Panel is still present in the current Windows 11 beta build despite Microsoft’s long-standing vow to delete it. Because of this, God Mode continues to work the same way it did in prior versions of Windows.

We will show you how to activate God Mode in Windows 10 and 11 and how to utilize it once it’s activated in the guide below. There is no downside to using this function, other than the fact that it makes it easy for others to change your preferences. You can now play god on your PC if you’ve ever wanted to (smile).
