Windows 10 has both modern settings and a Control Panel, but the Settings app gives a rough experience as some key features are missing. Well, fortunately for users, Windows 10 Control Panel has an advanced page for configuration. This feature is known as the “God Mode.”

It allows users to access advanced tools, tasks, and features with ease. You can also access your management features from one location. This mode gives a better feel compared to the modern settings of Windows 10.

The God Mode has about 200 settings that are assigned to various categories. For instance, you can find options for Disk Management under the Administrator Tools. A universally unique identifier tool like CLSID can be used to have direct access to various settings pages on the desktop. The tool does so by identifying COM class objects.

For instance, a folder named {D20EA4E1-3957-11d2-A40B-0C5020524153} can be created with CLSID to access Administrative Tools like defragmentation tool and format disk options.

You can try the following examples:

  1. {F02C1A0D-BE21-4350-88B0-7367FC96EF3C} for network.
