More unwelcome changes for Windows 10 Pro

Windows 10 Anniversary Update is nearly upon us, and those using the Insider Program builds are finding some interesting, and unwelcome changes that are coming to the operating system.  One of the best methods of controlling Windows 10 Pro is through the Group Policy management console.  But Microsoft has decided that users do not need some of the options available in the past, and the Anniversary Update looks like it will offer less control for consumers unless they happen to have the Enterprise Edition, intended for business use.
