Download to read offline

All popular editions of Windows 10 above Home have built-in administration tool gpedit.msc or local group policies. This tool includes a wide range of policies (settings) and is intended to force changes in the basic configuration of the operating system and accounts. It is implemented as a MMC management console with a fairly user-friendly and intuitive graphical interface. This article shows you how to force gpupdate on multiple computers.

Group policies of the computer and the user are updated by default every 90 minutes in the background (perhaps a random offset from 0 to 30 minutes). They are also updated every time you start the system. If you change some group policies and want to apply the changes right away, not waiting for 90 minutes and not restarting the computer, update them manually using the commands described below.
