  • Hello,

    What is the restriction you're facing? Are you unable to open Group Policy Editor or navigate to that policy? Provide more details.

    Regards.

  • After you enable run only specific windows applications, user can only run programs that you add to the list. If you don’t add group policy editor into list, you cannot access to it.

    However, this setting only prevents users from running programs that are started by the Windows Explorer process. It does not prevent users from running programs such as Task Manager, which are started by the system process or by other processes. You may try to start gpedit.msc from task manger or CMD, then cancel your policy configurations.

    Regards
