A user-friendly operating system is what Windows always strives to provide to its customers keeping all the settings in the Control Panel.

Though Control Panel proves to be sufficient for users, techno geeks and IT administrators may frequently want to customize and tweak their Operating System per their needs. That’s where “GodMode” enters the picture. The name itself implies ultimate control over the operating system as it contains shortcuts for almost all the Windows settings. GodMode is also referred to as Master Control Panel.

GodMode is a hidden feature of Windows which provide direct access to the features and functions of the operating system. Though it doesn’t add any extra functionality but it definitely increases the ease of access by providing all the controls in one place.
