    GodMode lists 252 CP items in Win8.1 and Win10 has a list of 245 items. It's hard to believe that anything has been left out
    I've been using it since Ed Bott published it, in Win7, Win8.1 and now in Win10. What does it miss that's causing concern
    Have I been missing something all these years

    I never really used or needed GodMode up until they started depreciating Control Panel features in Build 10074.

    Roger,

    Yeah, as more and more Control Panel items get deprecated, the "All tasks" (God Mode) list will shrink. Eventually, everything will be in the Setting app instead. However, I'm sure that there will still be ways to open these items directly.
