        Administrative Template files are used to populate user interface settings in the Group Policy Object Editor, enabling administrators to manage registry-based policy settings. Each successive Windows operating system and service pack includes a newer version of these .adm files.

        Previously, customers could only obtain the most recent .adm files by obtaining the latest service pack or operating system. Now, these .adm files are available directly from this page.

        This page provides access to each version of the original .adm files that shipped with each operating system or service pack. Each set of .adm files is included in a Microsoft Installer (MSI) package, available for download from this page.
