    gedit.msc for W10 Home


    Is there a gedit.msc that is works with Windows 10 Home? The ones I found were for Windows 7. (2010, 2011)

    Hey mate,

    While you may be able to add gpedit.msc to Windows 10 Home, it will not actually work to apply any configured policies since it's not supported in Windows 10 Home.

    You can manually set policies via Registry Editor though in Windows 10 Home.

    You mean gpedit? The group policy editor?

    Enabling Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc) in Windows 10 Home
    In the laptop which is Windows 10 Home v2004 build 19041.329, downloaded the gpedit package from major geeks and from the moment I saw notes about about Windows Vista, knew that it won't work. Also copied gpedit.msc from the Windows 10 Pro v1909 desktop, which was around 144 kb and the Vista version was less than 40 kb.

    Placed the 10 Pro version in system32 and GUI functions. I just can't think of anything to test it with. If anyone has suggestions, please post it here and I will gladly test it.

    With my limited experience gained in the past week, it seems to me that gpedit.msc is just GUI editor for the registry. I've been editing and adding policies directly in the registry to block updates of apps because the updates keep changing my settings.

    Hi. I installed a program once that enables Group Policy Editor in Windows 10 Home. However I found that if I ran a system file scan (sfc /scannow) that it would come up with errors and said it could not fix them all. When I uninstalled the gpedit program everything was fine again.

    I used the copy Windows 10 Pro, from the system32 folder 147.4 kB (147,439 bytes) size, and the last modify date was 2019-03-19 02∶23∶19.

    Copied it to the same folder on W10 Home five days ago After installation and reboot, sfc /scannow reported all is OK. Sfc seems to be able to do some minor repairs, and the procedure when a problem is found and sfc cannot repair, then one uses the DISM online repair tools to fix the OS.

    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth /source:isomountpath\install.wim /limitaccess
    dism /online /cleanup-image /startcomponentcleanup /resetbase
    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    You can try again and and see if it the gpedit.msc is the cause or not. And you can run the online tools without sfc.

    You might like to try Policy plus (free):
    Download Policy Plus - MajorGeeks
    Policy Plus 1.0 Download - TechSpot
    Policy Plus brings Group Policy to all Windows editions - gHacks Tech News

    Verdict

    Policy Plus is an excellent program for Windows Home edition users who want access to the Group Policy, or more precisely, to policies that are applied using the Windows Registry.
    Very like the MS tool but has a useful find feature too.

    I don't know what the person wants to do. As for policies, I modified them directly in the Registry. I just copied gpedit.msc from W10Pro to W10H and tested it, but I have no plans to use it.

    @dalchina This is just a comment. Downloaded it, but didn't work for me in Windows 10, v1909 and v2004.
