    How To Give All User Log In Accts. Group Policy Editor Access


    New consumer notebook w/ win 10 pro. 2 admin accts and one local. The local acct requires just a user name and a password to login and get to the desktop. From the one admin acct that I am using for the most part can I from that account unilaterally give the local acct access to the GPE? When I logged into the local acct and tried to access the GPE I was denied. TIA.

    I don't think it is possible to allow non-admin accounts to be given full access to the GPE as it would negate some of the Security features of Windows. The closest you can get is by adding "Everyone" to the "User Rights Assignment Security Policy Setting" and then allow "Everyone" access to some of the Settings listed thereunder. Personally, I would leave it alone, and just use an admin account when you need to do Windows house-keeping.

    Thanks for the input. You know I kind of worked my way around to that conclusion that it "would negate some of the Security features of Windows." I will take a look at the link. Thanks again.
