The problem is that without the editor, you need to modify the registry instead, which is far more complicated. However, there is a way now for those using Windows 10 Home to add the Group Policy Editor to customize the operating system like a pro user. In this guide, you’ll learn the steps to add Group Policy Editor to the home version of Windows 10.

How to get Group Policy Editor on Windows 10 Home

If you’re running the 64-bit version, continue with the steps below.

Once you completed the steps, open the Run command, type gpedit.msc, and click OK to open the Group Policy Editor.

If you come across the error “MMC could not create the snap-in”, it’s probably because your profile name contains more than one word. If this is the case, open the x64.bat and x86.bat files, located in C:\Windows\Temp\gpedit, and replace %username%:f with “%username%”:f. Keep in mind that the editor wasn’t intended to be part of Windows 10 Home. This means that you may not have all the same options available for Windows 10 Pro and other versions. This guide isn’t just limited to Windows 10 Home users, as it will also work with Windows 10 Starter, Windows 7, and Windows 8.1.
