Open Source – Policy Plus for All Windows Edition

This is not an entry for Linux, but for Open Source

If you require an Open-Source Local Group Policy for All Windows Editions including Home, you may want to consider Policy Plus

According to the Project Websie

Policy Plus is intended to make the power of Group Policy settings available to everyone.

  • Run and work on all Windows editions, not just Pro and Enterprise
  • Comply fully with licensing (i.e. transplant no components across Windows installations)
  • View and edit Registry-based policies in local GPOs, per-user GPOs, individual POL files, offline Registry user hives, and the live Registry
  • Navigate to policies by ID, text, or affected Registry entries
  • Show additional technical information about objects (policies, categories, products)
  • Provide convenient ways to share and import policy settings
