How to Clear AppLocker Policy in Windows 10

AppLocker advances the app control features and functionality of Software Restriction Policies. AppLocker contains new capabilities and extensions that allow you to create rules to allow or deny apps from running based on unique identities of files and to specify which users or groups can run those apps.

AppLocker helps you control which apps and files users can run. These include executable files, scripts, Windows Installer files, dynamic-link libraries (DLLs), packaged apps (aka: Microsoft Store apps), and packaged app installers.

AppLocker policies can only be configured on and applied to computers that are running on the supported versions and editions of the Windows operating system. You can configure AppLocker policies on any edition of Windows 10, but you can only manage (enforce) AppLocker on devices running Windows 10 Enterprise and Windows 10 Education.

Clearing the AppLocker policy on a computer returns all AppLocker settings to not configured (default) and deletes all existing rules.

This tutorial will show you how to clear (reset) AppLocker policy to return all AppLocker settings to default and delete all existing rules in Windows 10 Enterprise and Windows 10 Education.
