Hello Experts,

I could use a real GPO guru's help here.  I'm looking for specific GPOs settings and options that are new for Windows 7 only.  Understanding that Group Policies have been around a long time, I need to know which NEW GPOs and their settings have been introduced as new for Windows 7.

I'm researching what GPO options are available for Windows 7 workstations vs. what is already available for Windows XP and Vista workstations.

If I'm not being real clear in what I'm asking, as I may be asking it wrong, please let me know and I'll be happy to clarify.  Thanks Experts!

Microsoft has some spreadshets that are helpful for this.  You can filter the columns and look for "supported on"
