Hi,

We want to manage the internet explorer settings for IE10 and IE11 on Windows 7 computers.  The local Policy "Internet Explorer maintenance" is gone with these versions and the new way to configure IE is with Group Policy on a domain.  The environnement of where the computers are installed is not on a domain.  Is there any way to configure this with the local Policy editor ?

Will have to install the Internet Explorer Administrative Kit according to this article..
In earlier versions of the Windows® operating system, Internet Explorer Maintenance (IEM) could be used to configure a subset of Internet Explorer settings in an environment using Group Policy. In Windows® 8, the IEM settings have been deprecated in favor of Group Policy Preferences, Administrative Templates (.admx), and the Internet Explorer Administration Kit 10 (IEAK 10).

Plus...

Any settings that you previously configured with IEM will no longer work on computers where Internet Explorer 10 or newer is installed, regardless of the Windows version it’s been installed on. You must update your settings using Group Policy Preferences, Administrative Templates (.admx), or the Internet Explorer Administration Kit (IEAK).

This can be obtain the documentation pertaining to this from Appendix B: Replacements for Internet Explorer Maintenance

Here are the IEAK

Ok,  I installed it.  I saw that it creates a package of my settings.
How do I import these settings into the target computer ?

It's probably by executing the IE11-Setup-Branding.exe or the .msi package

I test this on a workstation and it worked; it propagated the configurations to the workstation once install.  The only problem I ran into when I made our company's site our home page it had the company's site and MSN.
