Until Windows 10, there used to be no Settings app on Windows and the PC was configured with the Control Panel. With Windows 10, Microsoft introduced a new Settings app to let users configure their PC without visiting Control Panel. Microsoft is trying to remove Control Panel in Windows 11 and handing over all of its functionality to the Settings.

Though the Control Panel is not entirely removed, most settings can easily be tweaked without the Control Panel. However, you can access the Control Panel through the Settings app or the Windows search. Windows 11 also has Windows Master Control Panel (also known as the God Mode), which can be manually enabled in Windows 11. This gives you access to advanced administrator configuration on your PC.

If you are new to Windows 11 and don’t know you can enable God Mode on Windows 11, this article will help you with that. This is the step-by-step guide to help you enable and use God Mode on Windows 11.

What is God Mode?

God Mode, also referred to as the Windows Master Control Panel allows all settings. You will be able to access more than 200 different Windows settings all in one place. Unlike Control Panel, the God Mode folder offers you more settings and configurations.

God Mode, also known as the Master Control Panel, gives you an organized view of all the configurations in a categorized way. This folder was made available in Windows 7 and you will find this in all the versions of Windows released since then.
