    Hello Andy,



    I guess you're using Windows 10 Home. Right? If yes, then Group Policy Editor is not available in Windows 10 Home. It will be available in Windows 10 Professional and Enterprise editions. As per the limitations and design, Windows 10 Home don't come
    with Group Policy Editor.



    Hope this will address your

    True. It's the same as for Windows 8.1 core.

    Hell Emeth,

    That's correct Group Policy is not available in the Windows 10 Home edition.

    I find that trying to add Group Policy to an unsupported edition usually ends in disaster.

    If you like, you can also manually set group policy in the registry. The link below can help you search for policies to see where to set them in the registry. I don't know if it's fully updated for Windows 10 yet though.

    Good point. It's definitely wise to create a system image before you start playing with gpedit*Thumbs

    Nothing ticks me off when I am forced to go to a Home edition of Windows like I had to do when I got a new computer and it does not have Group Policy Editor. Really the only thing I needed and used from the Pro version. I still don't understand why Microsoft does not include it. I also don't understand why some one did not even write a third party program which I would even pay for if affordable that had Group Policy Editor tweaks in it.

    But you can add it. Why would you want a third party app if you can simply add gpedit?. It's not even that complicated. Just create a system image before you start.

    Right now I need gpedit to disable this file came from another computer but you bet I can't disable it because I have home. I think I am going to pay for the pro upgrade. Home is too restrictive.

    Just a FYI that trying to add Group Policy to an unsupported edition usually ends in disaster, or doesn't work well.

    I agree. I tried that trick in Windows 8 and the Group Policy thing did not work. The thing is that the gpedit that you download on a unsuported version of Windows I think is from the XP days. I still don't understand why someone like winaero does not write a tool that has Group Policy Editor tweaks in the 3rd party program. What the program will do is look at the registry files and let you tweak them but using the program which will be much easier. Still after all of these years and no such program.

    I swore that I would never get the Home version of Windows again after Vista. What really gets me was I bought this Dell computer in April and I opted for Windows 8 Home because I though that Microsoft will give all upgrades Windows 10 Pro like they did when they released Windows 8 upgrade. If I would have know it would have known that the upgrade was going to be the limited Home version I would have paid more and got Windows 8 Pro right from Dell.

    Microsoft made it clear early on that Windows 8 Home would upgrade to Windows 10 Home.
