Hello Isag,

I'm sorry, but the Computer Management (compmgmt.msc) window is not the same as the Local Group Policy Editor window (gpedit.msc). Group Policy is just not available in Home Premium.

No Group Policy avail., found fix

Hi All...

I was unable, or at least too impatient, to locate/install Group Policy Editor. While there appeared to be a couple copies of gpedit.msc on my machine, none of them worked.

I was however able to rectify the "renaming" issue by completing the following adjustment:

Control Panel> Folder Options> View [tab]>

Checkbox "Always Show Icons, never thumbnails"

This appears to have solved my issue fixing all the mp3 tags and folders I have on my machine, thanks.

Hello EvilSlosh, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I'm sorry, but Group Policy (gpedit.msc) is not included in Windows 7 Home Premium.

How do users of Windows Home Basic use Group Policy ?

Is there a work around ?

Hello Harish, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Sorry, but Group Policy is not available in Windows Home Basic, nor can it be added.

The only workaround would be to set the group policy settings via regedit instead. To help, the links in the green info box at the top of the tutorial can help show you the registry locations for group policy settings. In addition, there may be a tutorial already written that will have a .reg file already created to make it easy to change as well. If you like, you could look through the tutorial index for any that may be created.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Is there any chance to add gpedit to context menu? I've tried with the registry file below but I get an error message about invalid Win-32 program.

Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\Group Policy]
@="Group Policy"
"HasLUAShield"=""
"Extended"=""
"Position"="Top"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\Group Policy\command]
@="gpedit.msc"

Hello bl00keRs,

Sure is. You almost have the .reg file correct. You were just missing the part bolded in red below.


Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
 
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\Group Policy]
@="Group Policy"
"HasLUAShield"=""
"Extended"=""
"Position"="Top"
 
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\Group Policy\command]
@="mmc.exe /s gpedit.msc"
