Activate GodMode in Windows 10 by Sarah Jacobsson Purewal

In Windows 10, settings and controls are divided between the new Settings menu and the traditional Control Panel. Some settings -- including touchscreen-specific settings and Windows Update -- are found only in the Settings menu, while others, such as the Device Manager, are still mostly accessed through the Control Panel.
Yeah. It's a little confusing.
If you're sick of switching between the Settings menu and the Control Panel, searching for your lost settings, there is a way to access all settings and controls in one place: GodMode.

GodMode is a dedicated folder that lets you see all control panels in one place -- here, you'll be able to do everything from adding clocks for different time zones to defragmenting your drives. And it's a snap to set up.

To enable GodMode, right-click on the desktop and click New > Folder.

Copy and paste the following* into the folder name:
GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

The folder icon will change to a control panel icon. Double-click on the new icon to see your universal settings panel.
*You can put any text before the period in the folder name. So, for example, you can name it SarahMode instead of GodMode, and you'll get this:
