Group Policy Editor - I cant find Windows Explorer under Administrative Templates/Windows Components.


  • I want on my Windows 2012 server to block out some users so they can't access the C drive.

    I open up gpedit.msc > User Configuration > Administrative Template > Windows Components  > No Windows Explorer here.

    I have seen people having issue not finding Windows Components File, but I don't struggle with that, only Windows explorer is missing.

    I can find both the ADMX and ADML file under:

    It's supposed to take ADMX file from the Central Store(C:\Windows\SYSVOL\domain\Policies\PolicyDefinitions).
    I see both WindowsExplorer.ADMX and ADML file there.

    I have even downloaded latest ADMX and ADML files in multiple languages, replaced the old files with these ones. Didn't help.
