Add The Group Policy Editor To Windows 10 Home

The Group Policy Editor, Is a very powerful utility, that allows you to configure and apply an array of  advanced settings on both a network and local computing environment. For Instance, you can specify login & shutdown behavior, account password requirements and thresholds, restrict access to Control Panel applets, add users to remote desktop and a whole lot more. Unfortunately, the Group Policy Editor Is not available In Windows 10 Home editions, so In this tutorial, I will show you how to add It with only a few clicks of the mouse.

Before I make a start, here's what I'm referring to. On my Windows 10 Enterprise edition, I've accessed the Group Policy Editor by opening the Run menu, entering gpedit.msc and the following window was displayed.

Visually, It seems like just a bunch of folders but beneath that facade, Is a very powerful set of tools, that (when configured accordingly) play a significant role In how your network and standalone computer behave. It's way beyond the scope of this article to even demonstrate the basics!

Given the Group Policy Editor Is only available In Windows 10 Pro, Enterprise and Education editions, If you're running Windows 10 Home, rest assured, you're In good hands- as I will show you how to add It, by simply using a .bat (Batch) file.

I have provided the download links to the Batch file, at the end of this article. So without further delay, let's get this tutorial started.

Step One:
Firstly, here's what happened when I tried to access the Group Policy Editor on my other system running Windows 10 Home edition. I've opened the Run menu, entered gpedit.msc (which Is the module to access It) hit OK and as you can see, Windows failed to locate It.

Step Two:
Let's get the Group Policy Editor Installed on Windows 10 Home. Once you've downloaded the Batch file, extract It to a folder of your choice. It must be executed with elevated privileges, so right-click It, and select Run as administrator as shown below.

Step Three:
It will now begin to download and Install the required packages, so be patient whilst It's performing It's task. The entire process shouldn't take more than a couple of minutes or so.

Step Four:
On completion, the Group Policy Editor will be Installed. Let's check It out by opening the Run menu, entering gpedit.msc and hitting OK.

Step Five:
As you can see, the Group Policy Editor has executed, hence It's up and running as expected.

Last Step:
Just to clarify where this was performed, It was In fact on my Windows 10 Home edition as shown below.

Final Thoughts:
There are countless online sources, that promise the Installation of the Group Policy Editor on Windows 10 Home, however the majority are either an arduous process Involving adding entries to the Windows system directory, or fail In It's entirety. As with every tutorial on this blog, I personally test everything you read prior to contributing the guide, hence my experience Is your experience!
