Usually, these modes are hidden and you will need to go to Settings or a few little tricks to enable them.

God Mode, whose real name is Windows Master Control Panel shortcut, is a feature that gathers all the controls inside the Control Panel (even the ones that are not easily accessible) into a list for you to control.

To access God Mode, right click on the mouse desktop and choose new then choose Folder.

As its name suggests, Safe Mode is a safe mode or more specifically, when you access it, Windows will only run the necessary drivers or programs, and not run anything more. From there, it helps you to remove the drivers of 3rd party applications or the faulty settings that cause your computer to have problems.

To access Safe Mode, click Windows choose Power, then press press Shift then choose Restart.

Then choose Restart then press key 4 to access Safe Mode (usually number 4, but if you want to be sure, you should check the list).

When accessing Safe Mode, there will be 4 water marks appearing in the four corners of the screen indicating that you are in Safe Mode. To get out of this mode, simply restart your computer, if your desktop is back to normal then you are out of Safe Mode.

Game Mode

It can be said, Windows 10 has more features for the game than any previous version. In fact, Windows 10 has a dedicated Gaming section full of gaming support in Settings and Game Mode is one of them.

According to Microsoft’s support page, Game Mode will optimize the system to increase gaming performance. Specifically, this mode will prevent Windows from updating driver settings and notify you when to restart. In addition, it also helps you achieve more stable frame rates depending on the game and specific system.

To access Game Mode, click Windows> Settings> Gaming> Game Mode. Then slide the bar to the right to activate this mode and Windows will immediately optimize your system for gaming.

Battery Saver Mode

If you are a frequent user of laptops, you probably also understand the feeling that laptops always run out of battery at the most important moments. To help you avoid such situations, Microsoft has integrated in Windows 10 a mode called Battery Saver Mode. This mode turns off tasks that require a lot of power to handle such as email sync and refresh background apps. In addition, this mode also minimizes screen brightness to maximize battery saving.

To access Battery Saver mode, press Windows> Settings> System> Battery. Then drag down select the cell Turn battery saver on automatically if my battery falls below, and select the battery percentage for which you want to activate this mode. For example, if you want to automatically turn on Battery Saver when the battery drops to 50%, you drag the bar to 50.

Dark Mode

Although it says stealth mode, but Dark Mode now seems quite familiar to many users. However, I still list it in this list because this mode does not turn on by itself, but you will need to open it in Settings. For those of you who are not “dabbling” in Windows Settings or parents, those who are less familiar with computers will often not know how to turn on this mode.

To access Dark Mode, press Windows> Settings> Personalization> Colors. At line Choose your default app mode, you choose Dark.

Windows 10 has a mode called compatibility mode, which is backwards compatible with outdated programs or software that are no longer updated to work with new versions of Windows. In other words, with this feature, older programs that are no longer supported will still run on current versions of Windows.

To access compatibility mode, first right-click on the application or program and select Properties.

Focus Mode

Actually, its correct name is Focus assist, not Focus Mode. However, I also list it on this list as a special mode. Focus assist allows you to prevent annoying notifications, allowing you to focus on kissing while working or playing games.

To access Focus assist, press Windows> Settings> System> Focus assist. Here, you can choose Off – Turn off Focus assist. Priority only – see only your priority notifications, and non-priority notifications go straight to the Action Center. Alarms only – turn off all notifications except the alarms.

S Mode

Having said that, this is a mode that you definitely won’t want to use at all. S Mode only allows you to download and install apps from the Microsoft Store, and it prevents you from using any other web browser except Microsoft Edge.

Because it has so many limitations, you definitely won’t want to use this mode. However, it is still possible that you will encounter it because there are some Windows 10 machines available with S Mode enabled on sale.

If you accidentally buy a computer with S Mode enabled, do not worry because you can turn off this mode easily. Press Windows> Settings> Update & Security> Activation. Then choose Go to the Store under the item Switch to Windows 10 Home / Pro.

You will be directed to a Microsoft Store page titled Switch out of S mode. Choose Get and confirm that you want to leave S Mode. This will be a one-way action, after exiting you will not be able to return to this mode.
