If you are on the way to deploy Windows Vista, 7 or 8 or even any server operating system, you probably want to control a couple of things with GPO, group policy objects.
If you want to see what settings are available for the different OS without running GPedit.msc or group policy management, there is great spreadsheet for download. This is perfect for documentation aswell, and you will find them here
So over to Internet Explorer 10, probably you notice that group policy settings is not always enough for controlling IE, in this case you probably want to use IEAK, Internet Explorer Administration Kit. If you haven’t heard about IEAK before, take a look that will help you during the deployment to configure favorites, search options etc.
