Group Policy – explanation, definition and rights

qa-featured

Group Policy is a feature of the Microsoft Windows NT family that controls the working environment of user accounts. It provides configuration of windows operating system. Group policy is often used to restrict users from using certain applications.

Within the group policy window, there are two basic components that can be observed. They are Computer Configuration and User Configuration. Administrator use the computer configuration window to manage settings regardless of the computer login i.e. it remains same for all users. In the user configuration node, administrator changes the settings for type of login accounts. In both the configuration mode, the software settings, windows settings and administrative templates are there. In the windows settings option, there are option to change the security settings and internet explorer settings. In the administrative templates there are options to change: control panel, start menu and taskbar, shared folders, windows component, network and system.

The easiest way to handle group policy is to go to windows start button and click on “RUN”. Type in the box gpedit.msc. You will be able to see the policy editor window. The administrator has the right to allow or deny users from using applications.
