How can I perform task as per Link on Windows 11 Home Edition?

Without the Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc) on Windows Home, you can alter the "Enable insecure guest logons" setting for the Lanman Workstation group policy by directly modifying the registry.

  1. Open the Registry Editor by pressing the Windows key + R, typing "regedit" into the Run dialog box, and pressing Enter.
  2. Navigate to the following key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanWorkstation\Parameters
  3. Right-click on the "Parameters" key and select "New" > "DWORD (32-bit) Value".
  4. Name the new value "AllowInsecureGuestAuth" and press Enter.
  5. Double-click the "AllowInsecureGuestAuth" value that you just created and set the value data to "0" to disable insecure guest logons or "1" to enable insecure guest logons.
  6. Click OK and close the Registry Editor.
Please note that modifying the registry can be dangerous if not done correctly. It is important to back up your registry or your entire system before making any changes.
