I’m sorry, but this is going to be a long message.(I should have stopped playing with computers a decade or two ago )I tried both methods that you provided; the detailed instructions followed by the batch file.I was unable to show you a screen clip of the group editor screen that I was successful in enabling because I was unable to make this text-entry box accept a screen capture image.I enabled the group editor because I was trying to follow the instructions listed here:(Why it’s happeningThis isn’t the problem of not running the Settings app as an Administrator. Those settings are controlled by Group Policy.It appears by default regular users cannot change these settings (it does make sense).I actually tried running the app as an Administrator from an elevated command prompt, Windows Powershell (Start-Process “ms-settings” -runas /user:Administrator), and also by right clicking and choosing “Run as Admin” on the actual SystemSettings application located at C:WindowsImmersiveControlPanel. Nothing worked)The answer to your question is basically because you’re on a normal user account.How to change group policy for non-administratorsSo if you do want normal users to be able to access the greyed out settings I recommend you follow the following tutorial:Local Group Policies – Apply to All Users Except AdministratorsYes, it says Windows 7 but most likely this will work for Windows 10.

This method worked and I am now able to open gpedit.msc from the run command in my Windows 10 Home Edition. Prior to trying this method, I tried your other method at this webpage: and it did not work. Now do I have to undo the changes I made in the first method, ie: deleting the 3 files from system 32 folder, restoring the two bat files in the temp folder, and so on?
Or can I just leave them? Will they interfere with anything? Thanks for all your help!P.S.
— The reason I wanted to install gpedit in the first place, was because I wanted to disable the computer from allowing programs and apps from preventing sleep & hibernation, so that my computer would go into sleep & hibernation after a period of inactivity even though I still had Chrome (or any browser) and any apps/programs running. I wanted this because I hated having to close everything down all the time when I was going to be away from the computer for a period of time, and then have to start everything back up again. But I wanted it so that my computer was secure and so that nobody could get into my files, and so this is what I found to do.Thank again! The batch file worked for me.
Gpedit Msc Windows 7
However I’ve had mixed results with the functionality:– I was able to set up a limit on login attempts.– I tried setting up a test batch file to run on logoff but this hasn’t worked (I followed instructions from another site).I’m concerned that, as some other posts state, you can run gpedit.msc but its functionality is blocked by MS in Home versions.I’ll keep exploring, but I’m thinking the limit on logins example is something that can be done outside of Group Policy, in Windows Defender, so maybe that is an allowed function anyway. The script gpedit-enabler.bat works and does indeed install Group Policy Editor in Windows 10 Home (I have Version 1607). The trouble is that Group Policy Editor does not actually do anything useful.
None of the settings I configure using gpedit.msc (either as administrator or as a user) are actually applied. Microsoft must have coded Windows 10 Home Edition so that Group Policy Editor cannot actually implement the changes you make.Has anyone used gpedit.msc, as installed by gpedit-enabler.bat, to make a change that actually had an effect in Windows Home Edition?
