The Local Group Policy Editor is a Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in that provides a single user interface through which all the Computer Configuration and User Configuration settings of Local Group Policy objects can be managed for your computer.
Administrators can use Computer Configuration to set policies that are applied to computer, regardless of who logs on to the computers. Computer Configuration typically contains sub-items for software settings, Windows settings, and administrative templates.
Administrators can use User Configuration to set policies that apply to users, regardless of which computer they log on to. User Configuration typically contains sub-items for software settings, Windows settings, and administrative templates.

Ah, I have the Home Premium--sorry for not reading carefully.
Under User Account Settings, Change User Account, I have Administrator checked off versus Regular User. Are we saying that under this version of the OS that is the best I can do insofar as a 'global guy' with all seeing powers and I cannot get into the Properties to increase power?
No, it just means that everything will have to be done manually through the registry instead in that edition. The only problem is that is not as easy since you have to give a very specific thing you wanted to do, but that's to be posted in a separate thread to keep this one on topic.
As adminstrator, that account should have global access now.
Sorry, but the Local Group Policy (gpedit.msc) is not available in the Windows 7 Home Premium edition. See red warning box at top for more on this. Unfortunately, you will have to manually do what you are wanting in the registry instead.
If you post what you need in the appropriate forum that best fits the subject, I'm sure that one of us may be able to help you with what needs to be changed in the registry for it.
Is there a way to permanently add the gpedit.msc to the Computer Management console?
I know I could add a shortcut to the startmenu, but It's a snap-in right? It seems like I should be able to put it in 'Computer Management' right next to Task Scheduler, Event Viewer, Disk Management, etc.
