Group Policy changes in Windows 10 Anniversary Update, set for release shortly, mean that users of the Pro edition can no longer disable some of the more intrusive aspects of the operating system.

Group Policy is a mechanism by which system administrators can configure Windows settings centrally, for PCs joined to a Windows domain. Savvy users can also use the local Group Policy editor to apply changes to their own PCs. Windows Home cannot be joined to a Windows domain and does not include the Group Policy editor, but Windows Pro fully supports this feature.

Meanwhile, defer the update up to four months, while we see how this goes over with the installed base. One will have to see if the Powershell removal option will still work.

This is the price of "free" (all your business on their cloud).

Innovative features like Cortana, Windows Hello biometric security, and comprehensive touch interface capabilities have distinguished Windows 10 since its launch a year ago. The Anniversary Update improves those and adds impressive new features and helpful design updates, many of which were prompted by a tremendous amount of user feedback.
