Group Policy Settings

Applies To: Windows 7

This section describes each of the Group Policy settings that are listed in the section Windows SteadyState. For each Group Policy setting, this section lists the location within the Group Policy Editor, the recommended values, and a description of the policy.

Windows SteadyState defines three security levels—High, Medium, and Low. These security levels provide a shortcut for configuring the many settings that it exposed. For example, clicking the High security level might enable a setting, whereas clicking the Medium or Low security level would disable the setting. The recommendations for most of the Group Policy settings represented in this section are based on Windows SteadyState security levels.
