Do you know that Windows computers have a hidden "GOD MODE" folder which offers a user a centralised and easy to navigate Control Panel for all of the OS settings?

To enter GOD MODE:

  1. Create a new folder anywhere. I did mine on the desktop.
  2. Rename the folder to this exact name (copy and paste it): God Mode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}. The folder icon will change to a Control Panel-style icon
  3. Jump in and change all the settings you want from the list there.  Inside the God Mode folder, you will see a list of all possible program tasks and you won’t have to stumble around the confusing regular control panel again.

God mode makes it easy for even the most ‘un-nerdy’ of users to tweak everything on a computer, from desktop background to setting up a VPN or adjusting mouse settings - in one folder!

Note that this works with Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 8 RT, Windows 7, Windows Vista and others but don't try it on Windows Vista 64-bit as it's known to cause a reboot loop!
