Using the Resultant Set of Policy (RSoP) snap-in to review policy settings


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.

After you’ve deployed your custom Internet Explorer package to your employees, you can use the Resultant Set of Policy (RSoP) snap-in to view your created policy settings. The RSoP snap-in is a two-step process. First, you run the RSoP wizard to determine what information should be viewed. Second, you open the specific items in the console window to view the settings. For complete instructions about how to use RSoP, see Resultant Set of Policy.

To add the RSoP snap-in

  1. On the Start screen, type MMC.

    The Microsoft Management Console opens.

  2. Click File, and then click Add/Remove Snap-in.

  3. In the Available snap-ins window, go down to the Resultant Set of Policy snap-in option, click Add, and then click OK.

    You’re now ready to use the RSoP snap-in from the console.

To use the RSoP snap-in

  1. Right-click Resultant Set of Policy and then click Generate RSoP Data.

    You’ll only need to go through the resulting RSoP Wizard first time you run the snap-in.

  2. Click Next on the Welcome screen.

  3. Under Computer Configuration, click Administrative Templates, click Windows Components, click IE, and then click the feature you want to review the policy settings for.
