I love it when I learn new stuff about Group Policy; or when someone shows me stuff I did know in a unique way. This is one of those.

Microsoft has a great blog entry and corresponding spreadsheet to demonstrate “What settings were added or subtracted in ADMX thru the years”?

Absolutely fascinating:

The only time to really “worry” is when Group Policy ADMX settings are DELETED by the product team. Typically: This isn’t done.

But it CAN happen; and if it does, you can set-GPregistryvalue Powershell item to help negotiate those rare cases.

(I go over this in supreme detail in my LIVE training class… hint, hint.)
