      God mode isn’t just a Windows 10 thing!

      How to Activate GodMode in Windows
      GodMode for Windows 10, 8, & 7 puts over 200 settings in one folder

      By Tim Fisher | Updated November 18, 2019

      GodMode is a special folder in Windows that gives you quick access to over 200 tools and settings that are normally tucked away in the Control Panel and other windows and menus.

      Once enabled, God Mode lets you do all sorts of things, like quickly open the built-in disk defragmenter, view event logs, access Device Manager, add Bluetooth devices, format disk partitions, update drivers, open Task Manager, change display settings, adjust your mouse settings, show or hide file extensions, change font settings, rename the computer, and a lot more.

      With the advent of Cortana and the ability to limit her to local search, I find myself making fewer and fewer forays into either the traditional Control Panel or my GodMode shortcut.

      But after upgrading to Windows 10 Pro version 1903 from 1809 Search stopped working (as did Timeline, which I do not miss and don’t want back). Now when I want to run a Search from the Taskbar magnifying glass icon I usually first have to run a  little Powershell script I downloaded from Microsoft. (It’s called Reset Search.) That fixes local Search for about a session, unless I run CCleaner, Glary Utilities or Disk Cleanup or the new Storage Sense Settings App. I suspect a Registry setting got messed up or lost during my 1809 to 1903 upgrade. That one (or several) would control the Service(s) associated with Local Search, if I my thinking is on the right track.

      I am trying to teach myself to use Storage Sense, because once I get used to its GUI this app does as much as if not more than the old Disk Cleanup which is possibly going away with some near-future Win 10 upgrade.

      So GodMode looks to me like it will go the way of most of the Command Window tricks I used to use. There are easier and more efficient ways to get things done these days, even if you do as I do and tame Cortana’s snooping with tools like O&O ShutUp 10.

      I don’t use Windows enough these days to make any of this super-critical to figure out. My daily workhorse is Ubuntu Linux. I stay with the LTS versions.

      Can you create a God Mode folder on one Windows 10 PC and then copy it to another Windows 10 PC. Since I sync my two Windows 10 PCs, I need to know if the folder is idiosyncratic to the PC it is on or not.

        Yes, it could be copied elsewhere; compatible with any Windows 7/8/10 computer.

        Windows 11 Pro version 22H2 build 22621.2361 + Microsoft 365 + Edge

        I was able to copy/paste it on my desktop on my Win10 Insider, so I assume it would be the same between two PCs.
