Enable Windows 8 Godmode

It might sound like your playing a video game when you read the title, but Windows does have a Godmode function as well, it gives you access to some control panel items.

Windows gives you the possibility to edit and add many features, but they are hidden so deep within the Control Panel options, that most Windows users will never find them. Godmode gives an overview of all features you can edit on your system, making them easier to find for you and tweak your system!

[alert-warning]Godmode enables options that would normally give you a warning before you would be able to open them, sometimes you won’t receive the warning through the godmode menu. Please be careful of what you edit![/alert-warning] [alert-announce]Don’t forget to subscribe to WindowsInstructed!
