Windows 10 – God Mode

The so called Windows 10 ‘God Mode’ isn’t quite what it sounds. In many operating systems God Mode usually bestows extra features or powers on a user that aren’t available to standard or even ‘Admin’ users but with this Windows 10 tweak it’s just a way to get to settings in one easy place.

In fact God Mode is just a name. You can actually call it anything you like as we will see later.

Once you’ve hit ‘enter’ to accept the new name you will notice that the folder icon will have changed to a Control Panel icon.
