I need to turn on the Windows Media Player Feature in Windows 10 for a large number of domain joined computers.

I know how to do it manually via 'Control Panel - Add Windows Features' and have found articles describing how to enable this feature via PowerShell or Command Prompt.

My question is how to do this via Group Policy. I've tried a number of different ways eg. creating a batch file and adding it to the Logon GPO, running PowerShell via GPO etc but nothing seems to be working. Not sure if this is because users are not local admins?

Has anyone done something like this before and can you please point me in the right direction?
