I am working on an SBS 2011 domain.
Is there any way to manage IE11 running on Win 7 using Group Policy across the domain?
I found this thread on EE
and the post immediately above the accepted answer (by the same contributor) that says:
The only official/supported way to manage Group Policy Preferences for IE10 is with a management station running the GPMC on Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012
There are no Win 8 or Window Server 2012 machines in the domain.
So, I am not very hopeful, but I was hoping there might be some workaround or that something has come to light since that thread / post.
If not, what is the recommended approach? Should we restrict all Win7 machines to IE8 so that it can be managed using Group Policy Preferences? The only versions of IE that show up under GPP - Internet Settings, are IE5, IE6, IE7, and IE8.
This doesn't seem like a good solution though, since IE11 is more secure than IE8.
