How to manage multiple local group policies in Windows 7

First off, I recommend against using Local Policies in a domain environment. One of the reasons for using Group Policies is the one-to-many administration that you get. Should you utilize local policies, you will have to visit each client manually.

Local Policies should only be used in a work group environment of 10 or less clients.

Here is how you manage them.
• Click Start
• Type MMC and press Enter.
• Click File and then Add/Remove Snap-in…
• Select Group Policy Object and click Add.

At this point, we can decide wheich of the policies we want to configure.
• Click Browse.
• Click the Users tab.

You can now choose to modify the local policy for a specific user, users who have local administrator rights, or users who do not have local administrator rights.
• Click OK and then Finish

When a user logs on to this client, the appropriate local policy will be applied.
