Hello.

Everything about group policy you can find here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/securi...

Always remember that that all modification could hurt your device. Better to do backups, create restore point.

If you have any questions let me know
Best wishes,

Hey. If you have Windows 10 home, you will not have gpeditor on by default but it is installed.

go here and download a batch file: https://1drv.ms/u/s!Ami-OP0uenbbpCv2XwPgRPuwrogg

Run the batch file

Gpeditor should be enabled afterwards after you restart your PC.

FYI, if this does not work, then the workaround has been patched and you will not be able to use it at all and will need to find another workaround for what you are trying to do.

Hello,

It seems you're on Windows 10 Home. So I suggest you to upgrade to Pro edition and you will get Group Policy snap-in enabled by default on that edition.
