    I think I've found why this isn't working in my case. I've just realised that my target machine is running Windows 10 Home and not Pro. I think there are problems with the global policy editor in Home editions, could this be why it's not applying the policy? Will try this with machine running Pro to see if it works.
    Ah, that would be why then. You can enforce policies on W10 Home (ex: from domain), but cannot create policies on it.

    Depending on what you want enforced, you could set the policy via regedit instead.

    I actually tried your method on a machine running Pro and it still didn't work! I'm going to try the LPGO utility from Microsoft, see if that works (if I can understand the process).

    Thanks again for your help.

    Well I tried the Microsoft LGPO.exe utility and that doesn't work either. It seems to go through the motions of backing up and restoring but doesn't apply the policy to my non-admin user account. It looks like I'll have to manually apply the policy using MMC with GPEDIT snap-in. Hard to believe there's not a simple way of applying a policy from one PC to another!
