    Information The Local Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc) is a Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in that provides a single user interface through which all the the Computer Configuration and User Configuration settings of Local Group Policy objects can be managed.
    Computer Configuration
    Administrators can use Computer Configuration to set policies that are applied to computer, regardless of who logs on to the computers. Computer Configuration typically contains sub-items for software settings, Windows settings, and administrative templates.

    User Configuration
    Administrators can use User Configuration to set policies that apply to users, regardless of which computer they log on to. User Configuration typically contains sub-items for software settings, Windows settings, and administrative templates.
    The Local Group Policy Editor is only available in the Windows 10 Pro, Enterprise, and Education editions.

    This tutorial will show you how to quickly reset all Local Group Policy Editor settings back to the default "Not configured" state in Windows 10.

    You must be signed in as an administrator to be able to reset all Local Group Policy Editor settings.

    Note This will only apply to reset Group Policy objects set in the Local Group Policy Editor, and not objects set manually in Registry Editor instead.

    This will not reset Group Policy objects for a computer connected to a domain using Active Directory. The network administrator controls these settings instead.

    This will not reset Local Security Policy settings.


    EXAMPLE: Local Group Policy Editor

  2. 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

    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.

    *Arrow Group Policy Search
