Policies\Explorer Subkey

Updated: March 28, 2003

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2



The Explorer subkey contains entries that store Group Policy settings for Windows Explorer and for the Windows interface. These include policies for the Start menu, taskbar, desktop, and Control Panel. Group Policy creates and maintains the entries in this subkey, and Windows Explorer reads and interprets them.

This subkey in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE stores entries that apply to all users of this computer. The Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer subkey in HKEY_CURRENT_USER stores policy-related entries that are configured separately for each user.
