How to activate God Mode in Windows 10

God Mode is a handy way to access multiple Windows commands in one single window. Here’s how to use it.

First, make sure you’re signed in to your Windows 10 computer with an account that has administrative privileges. By default, your own account should have the necessary rights. To double-check, go to Settings, select the category for Accounts, and then look at the setting for Your Info to make sure your account is designated as Administrator.

Next, right-click on any empty area of the Desktop. In the popup menu, move to New and select the command for Folder (Figure A).

Double-click the icon, and a window opens with all the accessible commands. Notice that the commands are organized by Control Panel applet so you can browse through the various categories, including Administrative Tools, Color Management, Devices And Printers, File History, Internet Options, Programs And Features, Security And Maintenance, Troubleshooting, and User Accounts (Figure C).
