Windows 7: Group Policy for specific users

Group Policy for specific users

Hi guys;

I have a few machines running windows 7. Is it possible at all to use the group policy to limit functions to particular users. For example; if the user is a member of the 'limited user' group, specific rules apply, but if however the member is an administrator the policies do not apply?

There are several policies I have implemented however they get in the way for administrators.

How can I go about setting policies for particular users?

Thanks in advance.

Hello Scud, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Yes, you can use the tutorials below to have group policy settings apply to all but administrator, and/or to only specific users or groups.

Local Group Policies - Apply to All Users Except Administrators

Group Policy - Apply to a Specific User or Group

Hope this helps,
Shawn
