Windows 8 tips and tricks: God mode

Windows 8 tips: God mode

In video games, God Mode is a cheat code that gives a player each and every possible power there is, as well as unlimited ‘lives’ making him invincible in the game. In Windows 8, this mode puts hundreds of OS settings at your fingertips in one single location.

To turn on God Mode, create a new folder on Desktop and name it




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

Here, GodMode will be the name of the folder. But you can call it anything else that you might want. Just ensure that the text following it, including the curly brackets, is exactly the same.

After that, the folder you created will include each and every configurable option in Windows 8. Use these powers responsibly.
