This one is pretty straight forward - Florian's Blog How can I export local Group Policy settings made in gpedit.msc?, what exactly do you not understand?

%systemroot%\system32\grouppolicy i see two folders machine and users and one file named gpt.in, in machine i see scripts folder and registry.pol. in script folder there are two empty folders restart and shutdown, and the USER folder is empty.

i dont understand where to paste GP.msc file or i need to change the .msc file to the .inf and then paste it . what will happen to the local security policies ? pasting .msc file of user policies is enough?
we dont have a domain its a standalone windows 7 ultimate workstation.

Ok, copy the two folders under "%systemroot%\system32\grouppolicy" on a machine you customized Group Policy and paste them to the same folder of another PC you want to use the same settings. Then either run the update command in the linked guide or simply restart the PC so new settings take effect.

On my machine I don't see anything special in the gpt.ini file, leave it out for now. Just copy the 2 folders.

You have mentioned policy.msc and then GP.msc, are these same? How did you get them?

Local Security Policies are a subset of Group Policy and will be copied when you copy the above 2 folders. See Local Security Policy Editor - Open for some more information.

Changing to inf file in the guide is for Security Templates.

Also to answer your question about administrator account, you can only have 1 user named "Administrator". However, you can create any number of admin accounts with other names. See User Account - Create

in cmd i typed mmc and from there i added add remove snap in added group policy object BROWSE NOn administrators. after that i applied policies to the non administrators and saved it on my desktop with the file name as GP. the extension of file is .msc

i have checked the size of gpt file size its 4KB on other computer and 8KB on my computer where i have all the policies

and the complete size of "%systemroot%\system32\grouppolicy" where the folder and a gpt file exist have the same 8KB size which is equal to the gpt file size

Alright I see now I pointed you to that tutorial. You don't need that msc file, it is only to manage the Group Policy settings for specific users (in your case non-admins). The settings themselves should be stored within the 2 folders. So just copy them to another machine and test whether the settings are enforced yourself.

Did you get the "Policy Updating" or a similar message when you run update command? Try restarting the PC just in case.
