    OK Are you ready for this one? I just upgraded my pc with a 2tb SSD! everything is lightning fast except login on windows 10. that being said I made some adjustments in the settings which helped dramatically however being the NEVER HAPPY WITH WHAT I GOT kind of guy that I am, I wanted to bypass the welcome screen on login wanted to go from splash screen right to my desktop. I read that if you went into group policy editor you could do that . seeing as I'm using windows 10 HOME, it doesn't have this option unless you d/l it from a 3rd party. which I did. suffice it to say that when I ran the BAT files as administrator, I lost control of EVERYTHING !!! I cant adjust ANY settings, no typed commands in the run area work . my administrator privilege's have been denied everywhere! is there a way to fix this without losing Windows all together? as a side note... I can get into safe mode and everything works. I actually went into the GPEDIT.SMC and re-did what i screwed up to begin with everything in that setting is now at NOT CONFIGURED. it changed nothing.

    I can't set a slideshow in the Lock Screen and one of the Microsoft suggestions to use gpedit msc didn't work

    I can't set up a slideshow for the lock screen. I can select a picture from the computer or I can select one of the Windows 10 standard pictures. If I select slideshow it doesn't change the PREVIEW and when the computer is inactive I get a black screen.

    One of the suggestions made by Microsoft in response to this problem in another post was to run gpedit msc. I have tried this or gpedit.msc or gpedit and in all cases the message I get is gpedit or gpedit.msc or gpedit msc "is not recognised as an
    internal or external command, operable program or batch file"

    How do I fix the lock screen problem or invoke the local group policy editor?

    Gpedit problem

    I just repair installed win 10 32 1607. Some things were messed up but I've been able to correct most. However I saw a recent post on how to remove Cortana. https://www.tenforums.com/general-sup...e-cortana.html. One suggestion was to use gpedit. But when I started gpedit,msc I got the attached message
    The program ran after I dismissed the message twice but did not display the needed choices. I took a shot at editing the referenced file but couldn't save it because it's in Windows directory and is protected. (I am the Administrator). How can I fix gpedit?

    how do i get gpedit for windows 10

    Here are two options:

    • Upgrade Windows to at least the professional version.
    • Use the backdoor method described
      here
      . Whether it will survive an Automatic Update I do not know.
