How do I get access to secpol.msc the Local Security Policy Editor from Windows 7 Home Premium.

Do I need to install or enable this for accessing it on Windows 7 Home Premium?


Follow the How do I install gpedit.msc on Windows Starter Edition, Home and Home Premium? instructions to get gpedit.msc installed onto Windows 7 Home Premium, and once you have that complete, you can then access the Security Settings via gpedit.msc to apply the same settings there as the Local Security Policy allows via secpol.msc.
