After creating a new GPO in our domain, I can't find Windows Explorer item under the "User Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Explorer". It appears to be the same result on other domain controllers when trying to modify this new policy. I'm not sure what else could be missing if I start trying to modify other GPO's.
I did review some articles online and I'm not completely clear how to resolve this issue. What I've gathered so far is that I would need to either:
- load the templates (Im not sure which ones specifically?)
- copy local admx files to fix possible corrupted or missing ones (is there any reprecussion doing this?)
- download the latest templates from MS site and copy it to the \\domain\sysvol\domain\policies\policydefinitions and load it through here (I download 2008 R2 ones and I found adml files. Do I just need to point the administrative templates and load which ones?)
I might be completely off on this issue but how can I get this resolved with the least possible changes? Is it even possible just to restore/reset it back to default setting?
