If you do not have ‘Run…’ in your start menu, you can press ‘windows key’ + ‘R’ on your keyboard.
This must be typed into the run command in Windows: gpedit.msc
Hit enter to run the command.
Note that this setting can be changed in all versions of windows apart from:
- XP Home Edition
- Vista Home Basic and Home Premium versions
- Windows 7 Home basic and premium version
- Any versions of Windows that were released before XP.
If you do not have the ‘Network’ folder in the ‘Administrative Templates’ folder, follow the steps below to make the other folders (including the required ‘Network’ folder) appear:
Right click ‘Administrative Templates’ (in the left margin of the group policy window) and click add remove templates. You will then have a dialg box with a list of templates. Click Add and this should open the Windows\system32\inf folder and list a number of .ADM files. From this list, add in Conf.adm and System.adm. Close the Add/Remove templates box and you should now have the requied options, the network folder included.
