Make Windows 10 check for Windows Updates faster & more frequently


  1. I have read that gpedit is not available in Windows 7 home edition, only Professional and Ultimate. Is this correct?

  2. Hey Michael, according to Seven Forums:

    You will need to be an administrator to open the Local Group Policy Editor.
    The Local Group Policy Editor will only be available in the Windows 7 Professional, Ultimate, and Enterprise editions.
    The Local Group Policy Editor feature is not included in the Windows 7 Starter, Home Basic, and Home Premium editions.


  3. Windows 7 Ultimate, Professional and Enterprise editions have gpedit.msc, Unfortunately certain editions of Windows 7 like Home Premium, Home Basic and Starter Editions do not include the Group Policy Editor.

    See if you can add the gpedit to your edition using this: . It has worked with some and not with others.

    Else you can always tweak your registry using the information given towards the end of this post.

  4. I can’t find the local computer policy on my windows 7 home premium. can someone please help me?

  5. So, this doesn’t work if you are checking for updates on the standard Windows Update (or Microsoft Update) site? It only works if you have an environment in which updates are supplied through an intranet server?
