Forbidden: How To Enable GodMode In Windows 10 [Guide]

If you’re one of those hardcore Windows fan who likes to taste the flavor of all the features and functionality of Microsoft’s new OS, then look at what we’re tackling with hidden ones like what we are going to enable right now, is the “Godmode”. In Windows 10, Microsoft has kept it as a secret inclusion and the term given to a special folder containing links to a multitude of settings throughout the Windows system, and has present in the last three major versions of Windows. Especially those intricals that the company has chosen not to tell you about. Thankfully, for those that like to tinker with some forbidden settings, the rather powerful sounding and hidden GodMode is still present in Windows 10.

However it’s also relatively simple to initiate GodMode in Microsoft’s latest OS as per previous versions of Windows.


Enabling GodMode in Windows 10

Step 1: Right click on the Windows 10 desktop and select the option titled New, then Folder, to instruct the operating system to create a new desktop loacted folder item.


Step 2: Make sure to give the newly created folder this special name: GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}


Step 3: Hit the Enter/Return key to create the folder with the given name. This will automatically turn the folder into a special GodMode folder.

Step 4: Double click as usual to enter into the newly created “GodMode” folder.


Once created, you will see the special folder will have a veritable smorgasbord of settings for over forty categories, including things like Word Folder, User Accounts, Windows Defender, Windows Mobility Center etc. Obviously, it’s worth remembering that as with previous versions of Windows, an individuak user’s mileage may vary from the settings included within the special folder depending on the hardware that’s running within the machine. It’s also admitted that the system account used to create and name the folder will need to have full administrative privilages for this to work.

The arrival of GodMode was an inevitable one given how power users have already started digging into the OS to unearth features that Microsoft would rather not tell us about. Windows 10 has been available as a free upgrade to Windows 7 and 8.1 users for the best part of a week and if you’ve tried out GodMode on your installationb of Windows 10, let us know if fared for you in the comments section below. I tried it and running successfully.
