Internet Explorer 10 Removes ‘Internet Explorer Maintenance’ GPO Templates

Just a quick note that took me some time to figure out …

If you are trying to edit the “Internet Explorer Maintenance” section of a Group Policy object and it appears missing, know that theĀ ADMĀ templates for IE9 and earlier are removed – by the install of IE10. I can’t explain the logic, but it’s true nevertheless.

If you see this in your GPO Results/RSOP Report:
RSPOReport

Yet you don’t see the Internet Explorer Maintenance item in the GPO Editor:
Tree-No-IEM

Know that you’re not going crazy. Just uninstall IE10 and then you are able to edit that GPO section again:
Tree-With-IEM
