Understanding Group Policy and Network Application Installation
The Group Policy Editor
is a system-level utility that isn’t directly accessible from the Control Panel
or any other menu; you have to launch the program manually.
What does the Group Policy Editor enable you to change? Lots of things!
The settings in the Group Policy Editor—technically called policies—affect
not only the Start menu, but also other Windows functions. There’s a lot
here to work with!
How do you launch and use the Group Policy Editor? Follow these steps:
- Click the Start button, enter gpedit.msc into the search box, and
then press Enter.
- When the Group Policy Editor window appears, select in the navigation pane User Configuration, Administrative
Templates, Start Menu and Taskbar.
- In the contents pane, double-click the setting you want to change.
- A new window for that setting now appears, . Check the Enabled option.
- Click OK to close the setting window.
So what settings can you change with the Group Policy Editor? Well, some
of these settings are the same as what we’ve discussed previously; others
can only be changed via the Group Policy Editor. In particular, the Group
Policy Editor enables you to remove items from the Start menu that you
just don’t use—and can’t be removed by any other method.
So there are a lot of "remove" options in the Group Policy Editor. Here’s
what you can change in the Start Menu and Taskbar section alone:
- Add Search Internet link to Start menu
- Clear history of recently opened documents on exit
• Clear the recent programs list for new users
• Add Logoff to the Start menu
• Gray unavailable Windows Installer programs Start menu shortcuts
• Turn off personalized menus
• Lock the taskbar

That’s a lot of things you can turn on and off about the Start menu and
taskbar. But, as they say on late night TV, that’s not all. The Group Policy
Editor also includes settings for the Control Panel, desktop, network,
shared folders, system, and Windows components. If you’re an inveterate
tweaker, there’s a lot here to play with—go at it!
