Checked my computer and gpedit.msc isn't on it, or the box says that it isn't. Running Windows 10 latest update, Home edition.

When I right-clicked on the first entry, my options were very confusing.

I checked my two laptops. Neither has gpedit.msc. I run Windows 10 home edition, which is up-to-date.

Bob, Windows 10 Home users will have to Google search for the method of downloading and installing gpedit.msc . . .

The problem, Bob, is that GPEdit is not installed on Windows 10 Home and apparently cannot be.
The Home edition does not allow Group Policy to be installed.

Excellent article! Can you do a similar explanation for those of us fortunate enough to still be using Windows 7? Thank you!

I'm not coming up with anything either! Closest thing I come up with Local Service - Group Policy Client. The name is gpsvc. Enter that into the box and nothing comes up either!

Windows becomes more and more difficult. It will be its demise. Just wait until it no longer lets you own a Windows license forcing users to monthly subscriptions. More people will learn there are hundreds if not thousands of outstanding free operating systems that are easier to use than Windows.

Various answers to threads in MS forums suggest downloading from MS [even include install instructions] but don't provide links. The latest reply I've come across from late April says that MS has patched Win 10 Home so that the GPE cannot be installed.

I have Home, so I'll continue to muddle through as I always have with the Administrator bs.

Bob, tried this but no luck.
My PC only for personal use.
In "Update and Security" still get "Some settings are managed by your organisation."

In a similarly weird occurrence, several months ago after an update I eventually found my laptop had been set to Window to Go. After a couple reboots (I don't reboot often) I finally paid attention to the on screen message at boot that lead me to discover the issue. I've often wondered if anyone else had this happen.

For a long time now my File and Printer Sharing is enabled after every reboot. Wish I could resolve that one.

I've had no joy either. The install doesn't appear to work on Win 10 Home.

Great article as always, Bob! I can tell you as of today (17 Aug. 18), the GPE file CAN successfully be run, installed, and used on Windows 10 Home Edition. I have Windows 10 Home, and I followed all your steps and successfully reset my settings. Thank you. :-)

This is why I still run Windows 7 on my old workhorse desktop that I use for my business(es). I never have a problem with anything that I need Windows for When I bought a laptop with Windows 8 on it, I could never (and still can't!) figure out that whole tiles thing. I HATE Windows 8 and when asked to update to Windows 10--NOPE! I just use the laptop primarily for some internet surfing and watching streaming stuff but when it comes time to actually do some work--I use Windows 7 on the old desktop.

Is there a downside to continuing to use Windows 7?
