GPO Management cannot collapse the settings.

Shane Wheeler 26 Reputation points

When I open a GPO and look at the settings, everything is expanded and I would like to collapse the settings because I feel it's easier to navigate the settings. I cannot find out why all my GPO's are now opening the settings in expanded view only. There is no way to change this that I can find either
there is no hide or show option

Hope someone can help, cheers

    I figured out a way to fix it yesterday. Even if your IE enhanced security is off, turn it to the on state and then save it and turn it back off. That reset the IE settings for me and now my GPMC collapses correctly.

    I have had this same issue for about 6 months. It's only on one server. The other servers will collapse like normal. Did you ever find an answer for this?

    No I didn't and just let it go, seems like no one here knows either.
    Only on 2012R2 Servers for me too, just appeared one day but couldn't work it out, had to let it go or more keyboards would be damaged.

    that's good you found a fix, but didn't work for me. I am only a couple of months away upgrading to 2022 so I will hopefully have it fixed with the new servers.
