Remove account policies lock in Group Policy Editor XP Pro
Posted on 2005-03-10
I am working on a desktop running XP pro, that used to be on a corporate network, but no longer is.
I am trying to simplify the login process ... and remove the password to the user accounts ... but the workstation requires a password, one with a minimum length, etc ...
when I go into Group Policy editor to the Windows Settings/Security Settings/Account Policies, I can't make any changes as the settings are 'locked', that is, there is a lock key on many of the folders.
I am logged into the workstation as Administrator.
How do I remove the lock setting, so I can remove all restrictions on password length, password required, etc?
