You don’t need to be a god to enable God Mode in Windows 11. This secret feature collects more than 200 management tools and settings in a folder. Users don’t need to search separately to use them, which is very convenient.
God Mode was introduced in Windows Vista, and most of the options it contains are located in various parts of the control panel. Although Microsoft has now moved most of the configuration functions of the Control Panel to the Windows Settings application, enabling God Mode still provides many useful options.
These include daily tasks such as adding and deleting programs and user accounts, creating and formatting disk partitions, creating system restore points, adjusting power settings, customizing the appearance of Windows, and fixing common PC problems.
In fact, despite Microsoft’s threat to remove the Control Panel from Windows, it can still be used in Windows 11. This means that God Mode can still be used in Windows 11, just like in previous versions of Windows.
