I’ve somehow managed to go my whole live without hearing about Windows ‘GodMode’. You know when you’re scouring through the Control Panel looking for the right section? This hidden Windows setting collates all of your Settings menu and Control Panel options into a single screen, providing total control over your operating system. GodMode is every single Control Panel setting in one giant list.

It turns out the fabled GodMode is very easy to enable as well. Here’s how to turn on God Mode in Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10.
