  • The instructions above are technically correct but as the name would sugest GROUP policy is more about applying seetings to groups of users of computers... I sugest you create a sinlge OU and put a computer and user in there an then apply a single group policy to it to start testing the settings... once you have setup what you want for one user and/or computer then start to more move users and computers into the same OU as your begin to develop your skills...
