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.
