I opened mmc.exe and from File>Add/delete snap-ins I added Group policy object editor for a specific user. From here I an give and deny access to many settings(around 100 in my case) on the computer. But I have so many accounts (around 6 users in my case) on the computer and I have to edit each and every settings for each user.

Instead I want to add Group policy object editor for a User group so that once I edit the settings for a group I can simply add all the users to that group and don't have to edit the settings for each users individually.

But I can only add individual users in group policy object editor, is there a way around?

  • Ideally you would have a domain controller and set group policies through Active Directory. This stuff is not intended for Workgroups. – paradroid Apr 15 '15 at 10:36
  • @paradroid do you have any idea how to export those settings and import it again in future? – Lifestohack Apr 15 '15 at 11:44
  • Sorry, no. I just use Active Directory. Windows Server Essentials 2012 R2 is pretty cheap. Stick it on an HP Microserver. – paradroid Apr 15 '15 at 12:46
  • @Lifestohack What OS is the computer? Is this question related to one computer or multiple? Do I correctly assume the computer(s) are NOT part of an Active Directory domain? – I say Reinstate Monica May 28 '15 at 22:11
  • @Twisty there are many computers and the computers are not part of any ADD. They are a localcomputers not connected to each other or to any networks. May be editing a registry on one comupter and copying it to others computers may work??? – Lifestohack Jul 6 '15 at 12:59
