Hi all,

Ive recently upgraded my domain to 2012. I was hoping that I can now take advantage of using the Group Policy preferences with IE10. I would like to add sites to the trusted and Intranet sites but Ive noticed that the "sites" button is actually grayed out and appears to be the only setting I cannot control?

Try enabling Protected Mode. That setting should be on for Internet Explorer.

It seems your problem is solved here: http://www.grouppolicy.biz/2010/03/how-to-use-group-policy-to-configure-internet-explorer-security-zone-sites/ the solution being at another location inside the GPO.

If you would rather populate the trusted sites list but still allow users to edit it, you can use Group Policy Registry Preferences. here is a guide (second half of link):

I would go with Josephs suggestion.

You can use Site to Zone Assignments but as Joseph stated, once applied it disables users from being able to add their own sites to the list.

I have used the registry preferences and it worked without a hitch.

True. Me myself use also what Joseph has linked :) So depending on if you want to let them still modify that list themselves, take his or mine.

I had the same issue last week with a customer. After I created a new IE10 GPO preferences (not the whole GPO). Now it is working fine.

This was the solution from MS.
