I have an ADM file called defaultprinter233.adm which I have added to the Administrative Templates. I have unchecked in View, Filtering, the Only show policy settings that can be fully managed. According to what I've read elsewhere, now an Extra Registry Settings folder should appear under Administrative Templates. I am unable to find it, nor anything that would refer to this policy. The adm file says:
CLASS USER

CATEGORY "Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows"
KEYNAME "Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows"

 POLICY "Device"
  PART "Device"
  EDITTEXT
  DEFAULT "Lexmark C762 233,winspool,Ne06:"
  VALUENAME "Device"
  END PART
 END POLICY

END CATEGORY

HI There
Look under both Administrative Templates (Computer and User sections and ensure the filtering is correct.). Is it under either of these?
i'm sure i once saw one appear in the wrong Section I think the User one appeared under the Computer's Administrative Templates if my memory serves me correct.
Anyway, worth checking

You were right. It appeared in the User section and the folder's name was the Category. Unfortunately after I enabled the setting, and did a gpupdate /force, and rebooted numerous times, the policy did not take effect..
