Seems that changing the group policies automatically (e.g. using a command line tool) is a little bit hack and would require a third party utility like PowerShell ( ) or LGPO ( )

Another way would be to edit the corresponding values directly in registry which is also quite tricky and wouldn't work in all cases anyway.
e.g. I suppose that in "Home" edition of Windows it would behave differently as there is no gpedit (Group Policy Editor), although there are some workarounds how to enable it:

So for now (with above in mind) I would just add the [Help] button linking to
