Hello all, 
    I am currently trying to write an all in one script for windows 10 and 11 and so far it's coming along great. This poses an interesting problem however, how can I manage policies as there does not appear to be any built in commands for it. I'm looking to manage password policies, and stuff like requiring CTRL+ALT+DELETE to log on. Anything helps :) 

Thank you in advance.

    Hi Friendly_Scripter,

    You can use secedit to configure the system security settings. https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/administration/windows-commands/secedit

    The exported security templates can be edited with the "Security Templates" mmc snap-in.

    Best Regards,
