Hi homarc.
As you've discovered, the group policy editor doesn't exist in the home edition.
You can borrow a few files from pro, but even then, it is very limited.
Depending on what you're trying to accomplish, you may wish to use this tool instead.
Look at the individual screenshots to see what you can control and if it will suit your needs.
