  • I'm not sure why it is not working? You cna run gpresult /r to check whether this policy is successfully applied or check whether it is overridden by other policy.

    Anyway, there're other ways to control this setting, registry or IEAK, regarding to registry,

    navigate to the following key:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER \Software \Microsoft \Windows \CurrentVersion \Internet Settings \Zones

    and edit related  settings, you can refer to this blog from Microsoft

  • Hi,

    Did you have some policy applied for security zone? check policy under  Computer Configuration, Administrative Templates, Windows Components, and open Internet Explorer, in the right pane of Internet Explorer, double click/tap on Security Zones: Do not allow users to change policies, check if it has been enabled, it might be enabled by system admin or domain admin. 

    or you can check some registry settings, refer to this link

  • I am using Windows 2008 R2 , Cant see this profile "do not allow users to change policies"

  • I have a Windows server 2008 r2 and this is a screenshot for policy:

    you should also check this policy

    under User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Component\Internet Explorer\Internet Control Panel\Security Page, in the right panel,  click "Internet Zone template" or something like this, check whether it has been locked, here is a screenshot
