Home versions of the O/S(s) do not have secpol.msc only the business
versions of the O/S have that secpol.msc.
And before you shoot yourself in the foot, I suggest that you create a
second user/admin account, which can be done of off Control Panel/Admin
Tools/Users where you can create a new a account or change the password
of a an existing account.
You might want to activate this account as a back-up too, so that you
have something to login with as admin for an emergence.
