  1. Retrieving Group Policy settings from an image


    Not sure if this is the right spot or if this should be elsewhere, feel free to move if necessary.

    Running W10 Pro 20H2

    I did a clean install yesterday. I thought I had all my previous settings backed up but forgot the group policy ones. Is there a way to retrieve these from a previous image ? If not I'll restore the previous, make note of them then restore back to the new and apply them. No big deal but if it's possible I'd like to avoid that.

    Thanks in advance for your assistance folks.

    :)

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community, we appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    I understand the inconvenience you are facing as with error: Couldn't connect to windows group policy service, we will help you with this issue.

    This issue might have occurred due to corrupted user profile, User Profile Service or Group Policy Client service stopped working, or Antivirus software conflicts.

    Group Policy Client service, this service is responsible for applying settings configured by administrators for the computers and users through the Group Policy component. If the service is disabled
    the settings will be applied and applications and components will not be manageable through Group Policy.

    Step 1: Stop the Group Policy Client service.

    • Press Windows Key + R on the keyboard and type
      services.msc
      , Services window gets opened.
    • Search for Group Policy Client service, right click on it and click on
      Stop.

    Step 2: Start
    the service and set it to Automatic:

    • Press Windows Key + R on the keyboard and type
      services.msc

    GROUP POLICIES IN WINDOWS 10

    You can change Group Policies by opening Group Policy Editor first. You can open it by following these steps:

    • Log in an administrator account. If you are already logged in as an administrator, proceed to step 2.
    • Press Windows + R to open Run.
    • Type gpedit.msc and press Enter.

    After opening Group Policy Editor, you can now make the necessary changes that you want.

    Should you have more concerns, feel free to post.

    Regards.

    Retrieving Group Policy settings from an image

    Group Policy Settings Reference Spreadsheet Windows 10 version 2004

    To add to OilerNut's post, in Group Policy Settings Reference Spreadsheet Windows 10 version 2004 - TenForums the GPA setting Always use custom logon background is listed [row 2520] as being in the Registry at
    HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System!UseOEMBackground
    so perhaps
    - that linked procedure still works, or
    - there is a way of setting this item up manually.

    I do not use Pro so this is no more than a suggestion.
