What is God Mode in Windows 10?

“A legendary folder, automated and hidden in Windows 10 that gives you quick access to the control panel and a ton of other handy settings in one place.” That is the Gode Mode.

The “God Mode” is a folder you create on your desktop to give you links to a range of Windows administration tools, tweaks, and all of the operating system's control panels.

The real name of God Mode is the “Windows Master Control Panel shortcut,” but it earned the name “God Mode,” which was initially an inside joke, but one that stuck.

Why do I need God Mode? 

Think of God Mode as simply a backdoor entry to the operating system to help you access all the Windows settings. 

God Mode is a useful feature for those in IT and those who manage computers. It is also obviously useful for advanced computer enthusiasts. It gives users access to the Windows operating system's control panels from within a single folder. This helps to save time searching for the items in the control panel.

Otherwise, most consumers do not really need God Mode. But just enabling it does nothing to your PC.
