Microsoft has published the administrative templates for Windows 10 version 2004, the new feature update for Windows 10 that Microsoft released last month to the public.
Professional versions of Windows 10 come with a set of policies that administrators may configure using the Group Policy Editor. Administrators may extend the default set of policies by installing the Windows 10 Administrative Templates.
These templates install additional policies on Windows 10 devices. Microsoft updates the optional administrative templates every time it releases a new feature update for the operating system.
The latest at the time of writing, Administrative Templates for Windows 10 version 2004, the May 2020 Update, is now available.
All it requires is to download the 12.9 Megabyte msi file to the local system. The downloaded file may be installed directly on a target system or it may be extracted using a tool such as 7-Zip instead to take a look at the templates that it installs prior to installing them.
The templates (admx) are available for several languages including English, Russian, German, French, Spanish, Chinese, Portuguese and Polish.
Administrators who compare the number of policies against the previous version will notice that the number of included policies has decreased by about 200. The drop is caused by the removal of msedge.admx.
Administrative Templates for Windows 10 version 2004 includes the following new policies:
