Windows 10: Local Security Policy Editor NOT FOUND Solved

    Local Security Policy Editor NOT FOUND


    I searched the TenForun AND my PC but found nowhere any indication of SecPol.msc.

    I have a W10 Home, is that the reason?
    Where can I download it, please?

    (Explorer keep asking network password on home network)

    Thanks!

    If you have Windows 10 Pro and not Home, Press the Win Key+R in the Run Box type secpol.msc
    If you have Home edition, you can Enable Group Policy Editor How To Enable Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc) In Windows 10 Home Edition

    Just to note, that in many case while this will add the Local Group Policy Editor in the unsupported W10 Home edition, any configured policies don't actually get applied.

    It's best to set policies via Registry Editor instead in W10 Home to have them applied if they don't from that method.

    Download Group Policy Settings Reference for Windows and Windows Server from Official Microsoft Download Center

    Back and again same problem on a new PC.
    It work correctly 2 or 3 days then start asking credential to access at Network Drives.
    The same he was able, few hour before, to access without asking ANYTHING.
    And back and again you need Group Policy Editor.

    Just run this .BAT with administrator rights:

    gpedit-enabler.bat

    And you get back W10 Policy Editor.

    Correct:
    having it means that at least you have an idea of what registry entries to look for!
