    Can`t open Group Policy in Windows 8.1


    Hi!
    I just bought a new laptop, it`s a HP Pavilion 15-n221so, and I want to disable OneDrive.
    I`ve read about that I can disable it using Group Policy.
    When I`m trying to open it in run, with the command "gpedit.msc, I just getting an error that the system can`t find it.
    I have a norwegian Windows 8.1.
    Need help, please.

    Hello Svolder, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Group Policy is only available in the Pro and Enterprise editions.

    However, you could use OPTION ONE in the tutorial below to disable OneDrive integration instead if you like.

    Hope this helps,
