Windows 10 God Mode

I became brave and updated both my work, personal and family computers to Windows 10. So far I’ve had limited issues:

  1. Had to do an “online repair” of Office 2013 for Word files to open again. This was a Win 7 to Win 10 upgrade.
  2. Can’t find a proper driver that will work for my office’s 1320c Laser printer. I hardly ever print, so this is low priority for me. This was a Win 8.1 to Win 10 upgrade, but I didn’t try the Win 8.1 driver either when it was installed.
  3. Can’t print wirelessly to my home Epson multi-function printer. Something tells me that if I reinstall it, it’ll work fine. This was a Win 8.1 to Win 10 upgrade.

But here’s what I’m really blogging about… “God Mode”.

This tweak is the same as previous versions of Windows and gets you to 260+ functions and tools. You can drag-and-drop any of the commands to your desktop to create shortcuts for the command as well. To enable it:

  1. GodModeIconCreate a new folder on your Windows desktop
  2. Label it: GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
  3. It will change its icon and label to “God Mode”

Another favorite feature is the “Snipping Tool”. This tool allows you to take custom screen shots and mark them up. It even has a delay feature so you can setup drop down menus before it shoots the screen. Just search for it in your start menu.
