What Is This So Called God Mode on Windows and How Do I Access It?

Windows has a really cool tool you will be glad to discover if, like me, you like to have lots of power on you computer. Some people have called this feature the “God Mode,” but we will call it “Power Tools Mode,” because we fear God here.

The Power Tools Mode is easy to access. Just create an empty folder on your Desktop, Rename the folder to the following exact code with the brackets and dot and then press Enter.

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

The folder icon should change to look like that of the Control Panel et voila!

This folder gives you access to tools like:

  • Shortcuts to several actions in the Action Center (including a shortcut to View the Reliability History discussed in one of our articles),
  • Several Administrative Tools,
  • Devices and Printers,
  • Several Accessibility features in the “Ease of Access Center.”
