    Hi,

    I was following this tutorial: Group Policy - Apply to a Specific User or Group in order to setup group policy for certain users/groups.

    However, when I got to the "Browse for a Group Policy Object" dialogue box, the only tab present was Computers, there is no tab for selecting specific users/groups as described in the tutorial. I have attached a screenshot of the dialogue box in MMC.

    Can anyone help me out with this? I am new to local group policy.

    The tutorial asks you to select Group Policy Object Editor.
    The screenshot you provided only shows .... Group Policy.
    Why is that ?

    The tutorial specifies that.....
    The Local Group Policy Editor will only be available in:
    Vista Business, Ultimate, and Enterprise editions.
    Windows 7 Professional, Ultimate, and Enterprise editions
    Windows 8/8.1 Pro and Enterprise editions.

    Which Win 7 version do you have ?

    Hi,

    I noticed that myself but there is no other item called group policy object editor -there is only the group policy.

    I have windows 7 ultimate.

    I tried that tutorial on my Win 8.1 Pro and there was Group Policy Object Editor as well as Users tab.

    Suggestion :
    Create another admin account > logon to it > and try the tutorial.

    I apologize.
    I can't think of another way to help you.

    Please wait for someone with better knowledge to come along.
    Good luck.
