Applying group policy without logging out (GPUpdate)

Sometimes you may need to change the group policy settings for the domain. For testing the group policy, you need to either reboot the computer or log-out and log back in to the computer. This will be a hassle when you are doing some trial and change on the group policy settings. To over come this hassle you can use the group policy force update option (GPUpdate). By using this option, you wont need to log-out from your account or reboot your computer.

Follow the below steps for executing the GPUpdate:

  1. Open the comment prompt.
  2. Type in GPUpdate /force and hit enter button.
