Since Microsoft no longer offers a shortcut for Control Panel in Windows 10, God Mode can be a fast and easy way to access all of its core commands. How do you set up and use God Mode in Windows 10? Here’s how to use it:

Step 1

Firstly, sign in to Windows 10 computer with an account that has administrative privileges. By default, your account should have the necessary rights. To double-check, go to Settings, select the category for Accounts, and then look at the setting for Your Info to make sure your account is designated as Administrator.
