Heather Bennett

Are you wondering how to enable VB Scripting in Windows 10? Look no further, as we have a step-by-step guide to help you through the process. VB Scripting, also known as Visual Basic Scripting, is a powerful scripting language that allows you to automate tasks and create custom applications on your Windows operating system.

Enabling VB Scripting

If you’re running Windows 10 and want to enable VB Scripting, here’s what you need to do:

Step 1: Open the Windows Registry Editor

The first step is to open the Windows Registry Editor. To do this, press Windows Key + R to open the Run dialog box. Type “regedit” (without quotes) and hit Enter.

Step 2: Navigate to the VBScript Settings

In the Registry Editor, navigate to the following key:


If you can’t find the Policies folder under CurrentVersion, right-click on CurrentVersion, select New, and then choose Key. Name the new key as Policies.

Note: If you don’t have administrative privileges, you may not be able to make changes in the Registry Editor. In that case, contact your system administrator for assistance.

Step 3: Create a New Key for VBScript Settings

In the Policies folder, right-click and select New, then choose Key. Name the new key as VBScript.

Step 4: Enable VBScript

Select the VBScript folder you just created, then right-click on the right-hand side of the window and select New, followed by DWORD (32-bit) Value. Name the new value as Enabled.

Note: The DWORD value represents a binary value that can either be set to 0 or 1. In this case, we want to enable VBScript, so we’ll set it to 1.

Step 5: Set the Value to Enable VBScripting

Double-click on the newly created Enabled value and change its value from 0 to 1.

Step 6: Restart Your Computer

To apply the changes, you need to restart your computer. Save any open files and close all applications before proceeding with the restart.

Congratulations! You’ve Enabled VB Scripting in Windows 10!

You have successfully enabled VB Scripting in Windows 10. Now you can take advantage of this powerful scripting language to automate tasks or create custom applications tailored to your needs.

  • TIP: Remember that modifying the Windows Registry can be risky. Make sure you follow these instructions carefully and back up your registry before making any changes.
  • TIP: Disabling VB Scripting after enabling it is as simple as changing the DWORD value back to 0 or deleting it altogether.
