How to Enable God Mode In Windows 11


God Mode has been available in Windows for a very long time. This God Mode allows users to access all the settings of the Control Panel from within a single folder. Of course, one can access the Control Panel settings directly from the Control Panel, but they are categorized which makes it difficult for one to find exactly what they are looking for. To make it easy for one to access all the settings of the Control Panel, God Mode has been made available. God Mode is available in Windows 11 as well and you can easily enable and use it. 

Since Windows 10, the focus of Microsoft has been removing Control Panel and making all the settings available in the Settings app on Windows. They are slowly adding features and settings from the Control Panel to the Settings app, so that users use the Settings app more instead of the Control Panel. 

However, Control Panel isn’t of no use as of now, and there are various settings that you can tweak from the Control Panel.
