How to unlock GodMode in Windows 10 [Tip]

Windows-10-GodModeOne of my favorite memories growing up with PC gaming was going all out with God Mode in Rise Of The Triads — a game otherwise known as ROTT. While the new GodMode available in Windows 10 doesn’t give exactly the same satisfactions, it is a nice little addition to keep folks interested, ala something Android might usually do.

The new folder that Windows referred to as GodMode in Windows 10 contains new links and settings, and is perfect for geeks out there who cannot resist tinkering with an operating system thanks to some additional power at the helm.


1. Turn on the Windows 10 operating system and right-click the mouse anywhere on the desktop.

2. Hover over ‘new’ and click the ‘Folder’ option from the sub menu.

3. You will automatically be given a chance to name that folder. Call it “GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}” without the quotation marks.


4. Enter Enter on the keyboard to finish creating the folder.

5. Double-click the mouse over the new folder and open it up.

6. You’ll now see all the new hidden features and settings available in the GodMode.

Not working for you?

Hint: the secret is in the file name. You must name the folder the exact name given above. Go ahead. Try it.

    [@Mathew] [@Mathew]Actually, I’ve grown to like Windows 10 a lot, having been an Insider since mid-April. My focus was the OS’s compatibility with legacy hardware and software, and found its backward compatibility to be quite good, save for one area: text and phrase expander software. I tried all kinds of expander software on my IBM / Lenovo ThinkPad R61i, and every freeware program bombed miserably.

    The biggest gripe I have with Ten now is the incredulous lack of personalization options / controls it has compare with what was available in Windows 7. Until that changes I’ll be quite happy to remain a Windows 7 “Insider” till 2020.

    you can actually name it anything you want – in front of the dot.

    all settings.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
    bugger all.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

    you just need something (anything) in front of the dot.

    Mixed results. Maybe my MS Intellimouse s/w but tried to swap white pointer for black & no change . Tried Defender and it ran right away. Not if only WIn 10 x64 Pro made little things like changing the title bar in Explorer & prgms easier. Finally got decent setup but come on…
    Overall happy enough after upgrade over Win 8.1 x64 Pro. Usual issues like sound & graphics card s/w needed to be redone. Most apps work. A few like Hot Keyboard and an alarm clock needed reinstall.
    Even ended up at one point of a frozen system with the system throwing itself into Recovery mode.
    When done up came that HI window message and I had to redo all the stuff again, esp Personalization and such things. Around time of the freeze I was trying Edge and it was getting hit by every adware, and malware on the planet. Don’t use that freaken thing until third party stuff is allowed. Or at least try it in Safe Mode or sandbox. You’ll be open honey pot on Net.
    Expect a big auto Update too soon after done, with no real notice. Read the stories about sharing bandwidth & Privacy issues on Net to be ready. So far give it 8.75/10 but then I was happy enough with 7 & 8.1 fwiw. Oh Chrome is bit of a nightmare too, lol. Just hang with it and plan to redo some things with it like LastPass. IE 11 seemed ok. The Windows Store pretty dumb w/ mess of games containing Play for Price features. Didn’t get to check apps but seemed usual ones. Need MS account which helps to access even before going to Store. Doing so kinda helps Win 10 to id your system as to Updates and notifications per Office upgrades-updates, OneDrive, etc.

    [@BearPup] No worries, Techie Bear.

    Power to the people!

    I hope you enjoy Windows 10 more than you did earlier versions.

    With so much of Windows 10 “hidden” under the hood, God Mode is particularly useful. Thanks for bringing the correct folder name for God Mode to us.
