Windows 7 Tips

Create a Shortcut To Group Policy Editor in Windows 7


If you’re a system administrator and find yourself making changes in Group Policy Editor, you might want to make a shortcut to it. Here we look at creating a shortcut, pinning it to the Taskbar, and adding it to Control Panel.


Note: Local Group Policy Editor is not available in Home versions of Windows 7.

Typing gpedit.msc into the search box in the Start menu to access Group Policy Editor can get old fast.


To create a shortcut, right-click on the desktop and select New \ Shortcut.


Next type or copy the following path into the location field and click Next.

    c:\windows\system32\gpedit.msc


Then give your shortcut a name something like Group Policy, or whatever you want it to be and click Finish.


Now you have your Group Policy shortcut.


If you want it on the Taskbar just drag it there to pin it.
