When you configure a lot of policies, finding these policies later may be difficult. Here's how to view configured Group Policies in Windows 10.

If you’ve either of Windows 10 Pro, Enterprise or Education editions, you can configure Group Policies using GPO snap-in. When you configure a lot of policies on your Windows machine, it might be somehow difficult to remember all configured policies. Due to blocks via configured policies, you may not be able to perform certain operations. In such a case, you essentially need to find configured polices and set them to Not Configured status so that you can perform required operations.

But the problem is that Windows do not simply display the list of configured policies either in Settings app or Control Panel. Thanks to Resultant Set of Policy snap-in which will help you to resolve this problem. This snap-in only displays the configured policies on your device which is the actual need here. Also, Microsoft has allowed Settings app to show only update related configured policies.

Here is how you can view configured policies on your Windows 10.
