    Cannot edit items in group policy editor


    Dell laptop, W10 Pro 64 bit, v. 2004.
    I just upgraded a Dell from W7 pro to W10 pro. I want to disable a few items in the group policy editor, but having a problem.
    I can open gpedit and get to the items, but when I double click only the description shows, not the options pane for editing. I spent the whole day researching this, but Google doesn't show any hits for this particular problem.
    I have another W10 laptop and a W7 machine, and don't have this happen with either one.
    Any clue, or is it reset time?

    :)

    Hi Tony,

    Group Policy Editor in Windows is a tool to help you manage policy settings. Here's how you can access the Local Group Policy Editor:

    • Press Win+R to open Run.
    • Type gpedit.msc, and then click OK.

    Let us know how else we can help.

    Group Policy Editor is not available in the Home edition. It's a feature in the Pro and Enterprise editions.

    Just to note, while you can technically enable the Local Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc) in a Windows 10 Home edition, it will not actually apply the policy settings.

    They will only get applied in the supported Pro, Enterprise, and Education editions. You can set group policies manually in Registry Editor though.
