What is Windows God Mode?

The official name for God Mode in Windows is "Windows Master Control Panel". God Mode in Windows gives you access to the operating system's control panels including convenient access to administrative tools, computer backup and restore options and other management settings from within one folder. Most of the items in "God Mode" can also be found in the Windows 10 control panel, but it is far easier - and certainly more accessible - to have all the options listed in just the one folder.
