Group Policy, Windows Powershell, and Internet Explorer 11


Update: The retired, out-of-support Internet Explorer 11 desktop application has been permanently disabled through a Microsoft Edge update on certain versions of Windows 10. For more information, see Internet Explorer 11 desktop app retirement FAQ.

Your domain-joined Group Policy Objects (GPOs) can use any of Group Policy-related “cmdlets” that run within Windows PowerShell.

Each cmdlet is a single-function command-line tool that can:

  • Create, edit, remove, back up, and import GPOs.

  • Create, update, and remove Group Policy links.

  • Set inheritance flags and permissions on organizational units (OU) and domains.

  • Configure registry-based policy settings and registry settings for Group Policy preferences.
