We have already given a solution to enable Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc) in Windows 10 Home Edition. But that solution is old and many people are complaining that they are not able to enable the group policy editor even after following the method.

In this article, we will show you another method which will automatically enable gpedit.msc console after running a batch file. This method should work 100% fine.

I have tested it on Windows 10 Home Edition but it should also work on earlier versions of Windows Home including Windows 7 Home Edition and Windows 8/8.1 Home Edition.
