    GPResult in Windows 10


    Not sure if this is the right subforum, I guess it could also go in networking, but anyway...

    I'm trying to test my company's Group Policy Objects. I'm used to using the command "gpresult /h gpo.html" but what I've noticed is that in Windows 10, that only shows the "user" scope, not "computer"

    If I have a GPO that only has computer-level settings, it doesn't show up in that report at all - it's as if it doesn't exist!

    I tried "gpresult /scope computer /h gpo.html" and got "Access denied". I'm in the Administrators group and UAC prompts are turned off, so I'm not sure what the problem is.

    Am I missing something here?

    What you are missing is that although you are an admin user and UAC is turned off, you don't have built-in admin rights needed to check other than user level policies with GPRESULT.

    To check the computer level (/scope computer) you have to use an elevated PowerShell or Command Prompt, whichever you prefer.

    Ah, that worked. Surprised I missed such a simple solution.
