There are problems: gpedit.msc win10 can not open the solution
First, upgrade Windows10 Home Edition to Windows10 Professional Edition; Not recommended.
Second, install group policy function separately; Recommend.
The procedure for the second method is as follows:
a. Create a text file on the desktop and copy the following code:
dir /b C:\Windows\servicing\Packages\Microsoft-Windows-GroupPolicy-ClientExtensions-Package~3.mum >List.txt dir /b C:\Windows\servicing\Packages\Microsoft-Windows-GroupPolicy-ClientTools-Package~3.mum >>List.txt
for /f %%i in (‘findstr /i . List.txt 2^>nul’) do dism /online /norestart /add-package:”C:\Windows\servicing\Packages\%%i”
b. Save the file in *.cmd format.
c. Right-click the file and run the file as administrator;
d. After completing the above steps, you can enter the command gpedit.msc in the Win+R window to bring up the group policy function.
