I am running into an issue with Administrative Templates.  Here's the skinny:
I'm on a domain with multiple Windows Server 2012 R2 DCs, which hold the central store.
I am trying to create a GPO that adjusts settings for various computers, including Windows 10 laptops.
The specific Windows 10 settings I am trying to adjust do not show in the GPO.  One example is Administrative Templates --> Windows Components --> Store.  The "Store" settings is not visible.  I have downloaded the administrative templates for Windows 10 and have added them to the central store.  I *think* I have done this correctly, but I welcome any and all counsel.  Help!

You need to copy over the ADMX store, and at least one language for the ADML files. En-us is a good bet.

Also, be careful which ADM template pack you downloaded. For each version of Win10 there was an update.

If it still does not work as you expect, try this:
- Pick a win10 machine for testing.
- apply a GPO to disable the central store for that particular machine.
- try to edit the setting that you want. If it succeeds --> central store is wrongly configured.

Administrative templates for Computers on a 2008 R2 DC doesn't include Start menu configuration options.  I want to control Windows 10 Pro desktop start menu for domain computers, not for users of Win 10 machines.  Any user could log in and settings wouldn't apply in such a case.

Any ideas on how to set GP to control this on a computer by computer basis?

Edit the GPO from 2016 or Win10. The DC level does not matter, it's just a file server here. What matters is the version of the GPO editor, and _that_ is determined by the OS that you use to edit the GPO.

Exactly!  Like trying to work on WIN7 policies from an XP machine.  Not going to happen.
