Group Policy Proxy and Homepage options not working in IE10

7 Jan

Apparently IE10 no longer supports the IE Maintenance section in Group Policy. (removed from Server 2012 GPMC)

A 2012 Domain Controller is Required for the IE10 Option to appear, so I added DC on 2012 server and then got the IE10 option under GPP (Group Policy Preferences)

gp1

I entered the details and applied them but it didn’t work for the user:

gp2

It turns out that’s because there’s a red underline (which is quite important), there are function keys F5-F8 to enable hidden options, see here: http://blogs.technet.com/b/grouppolicy/archive/2008/10/13/red-green-gp-preferences-doesn-t-work-even-though-the-policy-applied-and-after-gpupdate-force.aspx

So, I ran F5 on that bad boy:

gp3

And then run a ‘gpupdate’ and the settings now work, easy peasy eh?
