Is there an alternative to gpedit.msc for "Home" versions of Windows (ie: Vista Home Premium)?

The gpedit.msc is basically a front-end for various registry settings.

Microsoft published a document called Group Policy Registry Reference which "displays the Group Policy settings in the Administrative Templates folder and the registry entries that they change".

You can open the Registry Editor and change the key listed in the table.

Thank you, this worked. (And I am now considering writing a front end to these keys, but manually regeditting them will work for now.) –  MiffTheFox Sep 13 '09 at 4:26
@Albic, Is msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms815238.aspx the full list? –  Pacerier Nov 16 '14 at 0:29
