    Hello,

    I have a few officially activated Windows 10 Home machines, but there are some things I would like to use GPEdit.msc for. Is there any way to enable it safely without having to install Pro? There is nothing in the Pro versions that I would use other than gpedit so I really don't want to mess with upgrading/reinstalling Windows.

    Thanks!

    @Tito Thank you very much for that link. After googling a good while, never once did I find someone mention that there was an alternative to gpedit. Many thanks!

    The problem is though, that some policies will not work on Home.
