??????????? GodMode is a popular tool that Windows 7 and 8 power users have long enjoyed. If you recently updated your PC to the new Windows 10 Technical Preview, you don?t have to miss all the practical features that GodMode has to offer. Today, we will show how to enable it on your Windows 10-powered machines.

What is the GodMode tool?

??????????? When activated in Windows 8, GodMode appears simply as folder that includes various links to all of the settings and configurations of the Control Panel. Creating a folder may not seem as a difficult task but creating and utilizing this particular folder requires knowledge of a special code.

??????????? If you?re well-versed in the gaming world, you know that there?s always a tweak that will grant you ?god-like? powers like unlimited lives, invincibility, or infinite weapons. All of those tweaks are cool but they are, in reality, just a cheat. If you?re one of the tech-savvy Windows 10 testers and you?d like to enjoy those similar powers, Microsoft?s latest OS has its own GodMode that will give you access to more than 200 settings all within one folder.

It basically make your digital life easier by letting control your PC more efficiently. For instance, you can quickly change your computer?s screen resolution by simply typing a certain command that will redirect you to the appropriate Control Panel settings.
