- Sign in to your domain controller.
- Run the Group Policy Management Console as an admin (type gpmc.msc in the Start menu).

- In the New GPO window that opens, name your policy object (e.g. DisableRoamingSignatures) and click OK (Fig. 2.).
- Right-click your newly-created GPO and select Edit (Fig. 3.).
- When the Group Policy Management Editor opens, go to User Configuration > Preferences > Windows Settings > Registry in the left-hand navigation pane. Next, right-click Registry and select New > Registry Item (Fig. 4.).
