Symptom

You need to find out which policies are set to your computer.

Cause

This can be used for troubleshooting policies in a windows domain.

Solution

To generate a report from the policies you open a command line (= execute cmd.exe)

Now you enter the following command:

gpresult /h c:\temp\gpo_result.html

Please note, not every system has a c:\temp directory. You might need to change the path of the output file.

This will generate a html file containing the policies which are working on the computer. You can open this file with your favorite browser.

Have fun.
