Are you a superuser? Do you like to have all your settings and configurations in one nice and tidy place? Then the Windows 10 God Mode is the answer for you! This easy guide will provide answers to your frequently asked questions on the ‘God Mode’, what it is, how to set it up, and how to shut it down. 

What's Windows 10 God Mode?

The Windows Master Control Panel is a shortcut to access various control settings in Windows 10. Popularly known as the God Mode, the shortcut gives you easy access to all of the operating system's control settings from within a single folder.

Really powerful feature, right?

Well, unfortunately, for the common users - like me - it's unlikely we will have a great need for this "Godly" folder as the system settings and configurations can easily be assessed by making use of the search bar. 

What does the Windows 10 God Mode Folder Contain?

The God Mode folder consists of numerous files and consists of more than 60 settings and configurations grouped into administrative tools, backup-and-restore, BitLocker, etc. It basically contains everything you need to configure your device.

Each of these categories contains subcategories with an extensive list of tools, meaning you'll find every single setting and configuration you search for.

So, as you can see, there's nothing very exciting about it. The God Mode is just a folder of settings that will only appeal to advanced Windows users, developers and a special set of enthusiasts who prefer to have an entire array of settings in one single place.
