How to prepare a Windows 10 computer to sell

The God mode of Windows 10 is a hidden menu that allows us to access a series of tools and functionalities that are not active by default in the system. The possibilities that this menu offers us are disparate: from changing the font settings to grouping similar windows on the taskbar or customizing certain parts of the system to our liking. Activating God mode in Windows 10 is really simple. The problem is that this mode grants us a series of permissions that may pose a danger to the integrity of the system. This time we will show you how to activate this mode, as well as the functions that it presents and the dangers that it can entail.

20 Windows 10 tricks to improve your PC’s performance

First of all, how can I activate God mode?

Enabling God mode in Windows 10 is very easy. In fact, just create a conventional folder by right clicking on an empty part of the Desktop. Once we have created the folder, we will change its name to the following character string:

  • GodMode. {ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

We can also assign a custom name to the folder by changing ‘GodMode’ to whatever name we want to provide as long as the code is kept as we have described it. For example:

  • God mode. {ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
  • Total Access. {ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
  • Options God. {ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

The folder icon will then change to the icon of an executable program. What we will have to do to activate the God mode will be erun the folder until a window appears similar to the one in the following image:

This is what the God mode of Windows 10 looks like.

From this same window we can make use of any of the system functions, which we will go on to detail below.

How to activate the God mode of other parts of the system

God mode does not comprise a single menu. Thanks to a series of codes and credentials, we can access the administration mode of other parts of the system directly and without going through the mentioned mode or the Windows Control Panel. We leave you below with a list of several of the modes that we can activate in Windows 10:

What dangers does God mode carry on a computer?

As we have mentioned previously, most of the God mode options are present in the Windows 10 Control Panel. Other options, however, are not visible in the mentioned panel, such as the possibility of control your computer without a mouse or keyboard, or disable unnecessary animations to improve performance of the system. In other words, the dangers involved in accessing these functions are the same that we can find in this same panel.

What we recommend from is to navigate with some caution when modifying certain options of the menus for Security and Maintenance, Windows Defender, Ease of Access Center, System, and User Accounts. Modifying certain functions within these menus can lead to certain problems in the security of the system, not to mention the consequences that can have on the user accounts enabled on the computer or the display of certain elements of the screen.

Ideally, before accepting any operation, carefully read the action to be taken to avoid future problems, as well as perform a backup and restore point before modifying any sensitive parameters.
