Store certificates

Follow this procedure to save personal certificates that have been imported into the certificate store during a session. By default, certificates are automatically synchronized.

  1. Add the path Application Data\Microsoft\SystemCertificates\My to the setting Directories to synchronize. The operating system language determines the Application Data folder in this location. If a policy is used to configure multi-language systems, add each language’s location to the list.


On an English system, the path is Application Data\Microsoft\SystemCertificates\My. On a German system, it is Anwendungsdaten\Microsoft\SystemCertificates\My.

For your changes to take effect, run the gpupdate /force command from the command prompt as documented at
