Windows 7: How to change policies for a single group?

How to change policies for a single group?

Hi, I have made a group, and added some users to it. I now want to add policies to that group to restrict some stuff.

Unfortuantely, in the group policy editor, the policies apply to all groups/users.

Please could someone instruct me the best way to do this?

Edit:

P.S Sorry is this is in the wrong place, I didn't know the best place to put it!

Hello Liamwli, and welcome to Seven Forums.

This may work for you.

Group Policy - Apply to a Specific User or Group

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hi Shawn, thanks for the reply!

I have gone off that for now, however it won't let me select the group I made? There are only 2 groups in the list .

A fix?

It appears that you will not be able to apply it to a custom group that you created, but only to each user of the group instead.
