Local Group Policy Editor plus more, for all Windows editions.
Policy Plus is intended to make the power of Group Policy settings available to everyone.
# Run and work on all Windows editions, not just Pro and Enterprise
# Comply fully with licensing (i.e. transplant no components across Windows installations)
# View and edit Registry-based policies in local GPOs, per-user GPOs, individual POL files, offline Registry user hives, and the live Registry
# Navigate to policies by ID, text, or affected Registry entries
# Show additional technical information about objects (policies, categories, products)
# Provide convenient ways to share and import policy settings
Non-Registry-based policies (i.e. items outside the Administrative Templates branch of the Group Policy Editor) currently have no priority, but they may be reconsidered at a later date.
Special considerations for use on Home editions
Some administrative templates are present by default on these editions, but many are missing. The newest full package can be downloaded from Microsoft and installed with Help | Acquire ADMX Files. https://support.microsoft.com/de-de/hel ... administra
The RefreshPolicyEx native function does nothing on editions without full Group Policy infrastructure, so while Policy Plus can edit the local GPO and apply the changes to the Registry, a reboot or logon/logoff cycle is required for most policy changes to take effect.
While the UI allows the creation and editing of per-user GPOs, their settings are ignored by these limited editions of Windows. Edit per-user Registry hives instead.
Policy Plus is usable on all editions. It can load and save all policy sources successfully. More features may be still to come, though.
