    You need to install it additionatelly, starting from 1909 it is not RSAT package anymore. Try this: https://blog.migrationking.com/2020/01/install-windows-remote-server.html

    Hi,

    Thanks for posting on our forum!

    Based on your description, firstly I would like to ask which win10 edition do you have? The Group Policy Editor is not available to any Windows Home users, be it Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8.1 or Windows 10. To view the system edition, right-click on Menu icon then select Settings. In Settings window, navigate to System About, then you can see the information of Windows specifications in the right pane.

    If your edition is Windows 10 Home, you can either upgrade your edition, or follow the steps in this article to download and install gpedit.msc manually:
