What is the “God Mode” Folder, and How to Enable it in Windows 11 or 10?

Although Windows 11 and 10 include an all-new Settings app, Control Panel still exists and is very useful. A lot of users still prefer to use Control Panel to alter several settings on their Windows PCs.

You may prefer to use the modern Settings app or classic Control Panel; finding the exact settings is challenging. All you need to navigate through the several options to find precise settings. For instance, to change your environment variables (which affect what apps you can launch from any directory via the command line), you need to go to Settings > System > About > Advanced System Settings or Control Panel > System > Advanced System Settings and then click on the Environment Variables button.

What is God Mode?

The “God Mode” can bring your printer, Bluetooth, and several other settings in a single click. It doesn’t unlock any extra hidden secret features in Windows 11 or 10 or let you do any tweaking that you can’t perform in the standard Windows interface. Instead, it’s a special folder you can enable that exposes most of Windows’ admin, management, settings, and Control Panel tools in a single, easy-to-scroll-through interface. The best part of “God Mode” is that it lets you view the complete list of direct shortcuts accurately.

The God Mode folder offers an easier way to browse through 206 of these tools and get to know them. When you create the “God Mode” folder, you will find the following categories of tools:-
