2012 R2 based AD GPO to control IE Settings

    Question

  • We are in the process of revamping our network and have deployed a new Windows 2012R2 based AD Domain.

    We have a mix of Win XP, Win7 & Win 8 Clients. Although the process of discarding the XP systems is in the pipeline, it will take time.

    The Internet Explorer version on the client system varies from IE8 to IE11 and we wish to control IE setting such as Connection Seetings, Proxy address, Restricted Sites, also restrict users from making changes to these settings etc.

    We can see a lot of change to the New Win2012R2 GPO. The IE Maintenance is gone. In place we have GP Preference, but we some how cant get this configured correctly.

    Please guide us to get this setting done.

  • Hi,

    How is it going? As stated in the article provided by Prabhu, to apply GPP settings to Windows XP clients, we need to install CSE of GPP for Windows XP. As to configuring specific Internet Explorer settings for different IE versions, we can configure corresponding Internet Explorer item to apply the setting. However, GPP settings can be edited by standard users. If we want to prevent users from editing some settings like restricted sites, we can configure the settings via administrative templates.  If we want to prevent users from editing proxy settings for IE, we can try to deploy the proxy settings via script.

    Best regards,
