Group Policy includes the Registry preference extension. For computers or users, this extension allows you to:
- Copy multiple registry settings from a
computer and apply those settings to other computers.
- Create, replace, or delete an individual
- Create an empty key, delete a key, or delete
all values and subkeys in a key.
- Create collections (folders) to organize
Registry preference items in the Group Policy Management Console,
and so you can apply the same targeting to multiple Registry
- Create collections in the Group Policy
Management Console that mirror the structure of keys in the
registry on a selected computer.
You can create and configure Registry preference items for any domain-based Group Policy object (GPO). You configure the settings by editing a GPO using the Group Policy Management Console. When editing a GPO, you can find this preference extension at the following location:
