    Local Group Policy editor window size settings not saving, please help


    take a look of the 3 pictures.

    pic 1. default size of gpedit.msc when opened
    pic2. I expand the left pane for additional sub folders and its clearly not big enough
    pic3. so i expand the window and make left pane extend more to the right, so far so good like any other window in explorer.

    then I close it, reopen it goes back to picture 1..

    how can I get the size/adjustment to stay, please help.

  3. Windows 10 Settings and Local Group Policy Editor

    I was just curious to know if there is a way to easily locate all of the corresponding settings that are in the new Windows 10 Windows Settings app within the Local Group Policy Editor? The reason I ask is because I had recently discovered that several
    of the settings that I have changed in the Windows Settings app have not stuck. This has occurred on several Windows 10 Enterprise systems that I had configured at work. However, the only way that I was able to make the settings stick was to modify them
    in the Local Group Policy Editor instead. It took me some time to find the corresponding settings in the Local Group Policy Editor by searching on Google. That's why I would like to know if there is an easier way to find all of the corresponding settings
    in the new Windows Settings app in the Local Group Policy Editor.

    Thank you for your time and assistance,

    David
