Hello llagonowski, and welcome to Seven Forums.

There wouldn't be any need for that. The setting the policy in the registry sets it for all users.

Annoying huh, I tried via local policy and that works for all users, however, I have not been successful in moving that local policy to another machine. Even if I could, it would not be portable between windows 7 / 8. This is why a Windows domain is essential.
