You can view current Group Policy settings with the gpresult command. The syntax is

gpresult [switches]

Common switches are shown in the following table.

gpresult SwitchesComments
Get help.
gpresult [/?]
C:\>gpresult

Shows the help file if no switches are included or the /? switch is used.
Display summary data.
/r
C:\>gpresult /r

Displays Resultant Set of Policy (RSoP) summary data. The summary data doesn’t include any settings.
Send results to an XML file.
/x file.xml
C:\>gpresult /x gpresultsx.xml

Saves the report in XML format. You can then open the file in Internet Explorer by just entering the filename at the command prompt or double-clicking it in Windows Explorer.
Send to an HTML file.
/h file.html
C:\>gpresult /h gpresultsh.html

Saves the report in HTML format. You can then open the file in Internet Explorer by just entering the filename at the command prompt or double-clicking it in Windows Explorer. Figure 1 shows what this file looks like in Internet Explorer.
Overwrite existing file.
/f
C:\>gpresult /x gpresultsx.xml /f
C:\>gpresult /h gpresultsh.html /f

Forces gpresult to overwrite an existing file. This is used with the /x or /h command depending on whether you want an XML or HTML format.
Verbose mode.
/v
C:\>gpresult /v

Returns results on the local computer in verbose mode. This provides additional details on Group Policy settings.
Super verbose mode.
/z
C:\>gpresult /z

Specifies that the super-verbose mode is used. This provides significantly more details on Group Policy settings than the verbose mode.

Tip

This output can provide insight into the settings that are applied.

Retrieve GPO settings from another computer.
/s computername
C:\>gpresult /z /s dc1

Specifies a remote system to connect to for Group Policy details.

Note

The /s option can be used only when also using one of the following switches: /x, /h, /r, /v, or /z.

Run the command with a different user.
/u user | domain\user
C:\>gpresult /s dc1 /z /u
pearson\administrator

Runs gpresult with a different user account. You are prompted to provide the password.

Note

The u option can only be used when also using the s switch, which also requires one of the following switches: /x, /h, /r, /v, or /z.

Run the command with a different user without prompting for a password.
/u user | domain\user  /p password
C:\>gpresult /s dc1 /z /u
pearson\administrator /p P@ssw0rd

Runs gpresult with a different user account without prompting for a password.
Specify only user or computer settings.
/scope user | computer
C:\>gpresult /z /scope user
C:\>gpresult /z /scope compute

You can retrieve only the user or only the computer settings with the /scope switch.

Tip

You can output the settings to a text file with the redirect command. For example, gpresult /z > gpr.txt sends the output to a text file named gpr.txt.
