    But you can add it. Why would you want a third party app if you can simply add gpedit?. It's not even that complicated. Just create a system image before you start.
    Just a FYI that trying to add Group Policy to an unsupported edition usually ends in disaster, or doesn't work well.

    I agree. I tried that trick in Windows 8 and the Group Policy thing did not work. The thing is that the gpedit that you download on a unsuported version of Windows I think is from the XP days. I still don't understand why someone like winaero does not write a tool that has Group Policy Editor tweaks in the 3rd party program. What the program will do is look at the registry files and let you tweak them but using the program which will be much easier. Still after all of these years and no such program.

    I swore that I would never get the Home version of Windows again after Vista. What really gets me was I bought this Dell computer in April and I opted for Windows 8 Home because I though that Microsoft will give all upgrades Windows 10 Pro like they did when they released Windows 8 upgrade. If I would have know it would have known that the upgrade was going to be the limited Home version I would have paid more and got Windows 8 Pro right from Dell.

    Microsoft made it clear early on that Windows 8 Home would upgrade to Windows 10 Home.

    Well it cannot end in disaster if there is a system image. And I have added gpedit to various Windows 8.1 home editions without experiencing problems.
