can someone provide an easy way I can add an entry into trusted sites for machines running ie 10 and ie 11?
this used to be via IE maintenance in GPO, but that is gone now, we have users with ie 10 and 11 in the enterprise.

pls advise how I can do this.

I also need to be able to add "automatic login with current username / pwd" in the zone settings.

Go to User Configuration, Policies, Administrative Templates, Windows Components, Internet Explorer, Internet Control Panel, Security Page, enable site to zone assignment list and add the network drive or unc path with with value 1

FYI.
If a setting/settings are greyed out when you go directly to the application that is a good indication that there is a GPO that has control of the settings.

You are seeing it first hand with the IE Trusted sites.
