Don't see Internet Explorer Maintenance in Group Policy Management

Issue with web content filter GPO, it refers to proxy settings which look changed, working from IE 8 to IE11

Only thing is within Group Policy, I see Internet Explorer Maintenance under User configuration-Policies

in this i can see the old proxy being referenced, from what I can see IEM is deprecated for IE 11

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/internet-explorer/ie11-deploy-guide/missing-internet-explorer-maintenance-settings-for-ie11 

When I try to edit the web content filter I don't see Internet Explorer Maintenance,

Any best way to do this within Windows Settings I can only see

-Scripts (Logon\Logoff)
-Security Settings
-Folder Redirection
-Policy based QOS

Is there a handy\quick way to check this?

You need to copy the ADM/ADMX files into C:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions, specifically Inetres.admx and Inetres.adml.

Close and relaunch the MMC console and now they should show up.

Are you doing this right from the DC?  And are you running the MMC from the DC or your computer?

Thanks Adam for all your help, would a workaround for this be to use a Win7 machine (which has IE10 installed), add the RSAT to that machine, and administer your GPO from it that way?

Just not sure what else to do with it

I went and did more research on this and it appears IEM stopped working from the MMC when IE 10 was released.

The quick and dirty would be to use Notepad++/Notepad and edit the XML file for this policy directly under sysvol (backup a copy of course before modifying):

If that works, great.  Otherwise, I think you will need to re-create the policy with GPP and then unlink the policy that used IEM.
