How to Enable Local Security Policy (secpol.msc) in Windows 11/10 Home Edition?

The Local Security Policy (secpol.msc) in Windows 11/10 contains essential information about the security of a local computer. Moreover, it is not a part of the Windows home edition. When we try to access the Local Security Policy in Windows 11/10 Home edition, we receive an error that says Windows 11/10 can,t find secpol.msc. Administrators primarily use it to manage and administer different security parameters of the host computer.


We must first enable it if we want to apply some security policies on our Windows 11/10 Home system. We will show how you can download and allow Local Security Policy (secpol.msc) on your computer in this risewindows article.

We should note that enabling Local Security Policy (secpol.msc) will also allow the Local Group Policy (gpedit.msc) on our computer.

How to Enable SecPol.msc in Windows 11/10 Home Edition?

Step 1. We need to download the SecPol.msc script on our computer first.

Step 2. After that, right-click on the downloaded file and click on the Extract all option.


Step 3. Now, from the bottom of the windows click on the Extract button.


Step 4. After that, right-click on the “gpedit-enabler.bat” file when the script file is extracted in a folder, and select the Run as administrator option.



A command prompt window will open and download and install the required files automatically on our PC.


Then, from the command prompt window, we will see “Press any key to continue”. We need to press any key from the keyboard to exit it when we are on the command prompt window.

Now our Windows 11/10 is ready to run Local Security Policy (secpol.msc) and Local Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc) on our computer.

We need to open the Run dialog box by pressing Windows + R keys from the keyboard to run “secpol.msc” or “gpedit.msc“. Type “secpol.msc” or “gpedit.msc” in the Run box and press Enter from the keyboard.


All the best.
