What is Centralized Group Policy
If you’re using a Windows computer in an Active Directory environment, Group Policy settings can be defined on the domain controller. Network administrators have one place where they can configure a variety of Windows settings for every computer on the network. These settings can also be enforced, so users can’t change them. For example, using group policy, a network administrator can block access to certain sections of the Windows control panel, or set a specific website as the home page for every computer on the network.
This can be useful for locking down computers, restricting access to specific folders, control panel applets, and applications. It can also be used to change a variety of Windows settings, including ones that can’t be changed from the control panel or require registry tweaks to change.
