Secret Tip: How to access Windows 7 ‘God Mode’

Some Windows 7 users have come across an undocumented feature of their operating system, which allows access to practically every configuration setting from a single location. The so called ‘God Mode’ is something that Microsoft’s software developers use to make their lives easier while developing software, but is not intended for the general public. However, using God Mode can greatly speed-up how you work with Windows, since you don’t need to go searching through different control panels looking for the setting you’re after – practically all Windows settings are available from a single location. To access God Mode, follow the steps below:


  • Right-click on a blank area of the desktop and choose New > Folder.
  • Name the new folder godmode.{00C6D95F-329C-409a-81D7-C46C66EA7F33}
  • Double-click on the godmode folder and you will be taken to a comprehensive new settings panel.

Works okay for me in 7 64-bit... I heard the issues are with Vista 64-bit.
