Pinning .msc Items to "Start". Solved

    Pinning .msc Items to "Start".


    Ok so, I know that I can right click on something in the Start Menu and click "Pin To Start". . . Is there any possible way that I could pin "gpedit.msc" to Start?

    I found out how to add the Services, but it won't allow me to add gpedit.msc.

    Yes, you can but it's unnecessarily convoluted.

    1. Create a shortcut to gpedit.msc - rename it to 'Group Policy Editor Snapin' (or whatever you want)
    2. Move that shortcut to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs (assuming you're using the default location)
    3. Now you'll have 'Group Policy Editor Snapin' in your 'All Apps' list on the Start Menu (in the recently added apps space at the top)
    4. Right-click on 'Group Policy Editor Snapin' in 'All Programs' and click 'Pin to Start'
    5. Profit

    Actually, step 2 is unnecessary (unless you really want to add it to your All app list too) . You can create a shortcut on the desktop, right-click on it and pin it to Start from there. When done you can delete the desktop shortcut without affecting the pinned tile on Start.

    I just typed gpedit.msc into the search box and when it showed in the results
    rightclick/ pin to start
