Turning on GodMode follows the same series of steps for Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10.

1.Create a new folder anywhere you want

You can do this by right-clicking or tapping & holding any empty space in any folder in Windows followed by choosing New > Folder.

2.To name the folder, copy and paste this in the text box:

God Mode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

Note: ‘God Mode’ mentioned here is only a custom name and you can change it to a name of your choice. However, the rest of the text should be the same as mentioned.

The folder icon will change into a Control Panel icon and anything that’s after the customer folder name will disappear.

3. Open GodMode by double-clicking or double-tapping new folder.

What Is GodMode Actually?

As already said above, GodMode is a quick-access folder filled with shortcuts to administrative tools and settings. It makes it easy to put shortcuts anywhere, like in the desktop.

Let’s take an example of Windows 10. In order to edit, the environment variables, a user can go for the lengthy route of opening Control Panel and navigating to System and Security > System > Advanced system settings.
Or they can go access ‘Edit the system environment variables’ option and go to the same place in comparatively lesser steps.

It’s important to know that GodMode is not a set of new Windows tweaks or hacks that bestow users with unique features or functions. Also, there is nothing that’s one-of-its-kind in GodMode.

Having said that, there’s no need to enable GodMode to carry out these things. Task Manager can be easily and quickly opened in GodMode; however, it performs equally fast, if not faster, with Ctrl+Shift+Esc or Ctrl+Alt+Del keyboard shortcut.

In the same way, Device Manager could be opened in many ways in addition to GodMode folder, such as in Command Prompt or through the Run dialog box.

A Bit More About GodMode

It can be used in Windows Vista if it has 32-bit edition. This is because GodMode is known to crash 64-bit versions of Windows Vista and the way to fix it is booting in Safe Mode and removing the folder.

To undo GodMode, the user can simply delete the folder and they are free from it. But when it comes to removing it from a folder that already had data, it is recommended not to delete it.

Users must always remember that GodMode must only be made with a folder that is completely empty otherwise, they won’t have access to those files after the folder has been renamed. Yes, this sounds like a good way to hide the sensitive files but is a tricky thing if you don’t know how to retrieve the data back.

Windows Explorer can’t be used to rename the GodMode folder back to the original name. There’s nothing to panic because there is definitely another way and is given below:

> Open Command Prompt at the location of GodMode folder
> Use the ren command and rename it to something else such as “old folder”

ren “God Mode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}” old folder

Once this has been done, the folder returns back to normal and the files will look as expected.

With this, the discussion ends. Hopefully, you now have a better knowledge about GodMode and the right way to activate it.
