    Information The Local Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc) is a Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in that provides a single user interface through which all the the Computer Configuration and User Configuration settings of Local Group Policy objects can be managed.

    Multiple Local Group Policy is a collection of Local Group Policy objects (LGPOs) designed to provide improved management for computers that are not part of a domain. This collection consists of the following LGPOs:
    • Local Computer Policy - This LGPO applies policy settings to the computer and any users logging on to the computer. This is the same LGPO that was included in earlier versions of Microsoft Windows.
    • Administrators Local Group Policy - This LGPO applies user policy settings to members of the Administrators group.
    • Non-Administrators Local Group Policy - This LGPO applies user policy settings to users who are not included in the Administrators group.
    • User-Specific Local Group Policy - This LGPO applies user policy settings to a specific local user.
    This tutorial will show you how to create a Non-Administrators Local Group Policy MSC (Microsoft Saved Console) that applies user policy settings to all users except administrators in Windows 10.

    You must be signed in as an administrator to be able to apply non-administrators Local Group Policies.

    Note The Local Group Policy Editor is only available in the Windows 10 Pro, Enterprise, and Education editions.

    Multiple Local Group Policy objects (MLGPOs) are not available on domain controllers.

    Local Group Policy is processed in the following order, with the final LGPO taking precedence over all others:
    1. Local Group Policy (also known as Local Computer Policy).
    2. non-administrators Local Group Policy.
    3. User-specific Local Group Policy.
    User-specific LGPOs are stored in the hidden C:\Windows\System32\GroupPolicyUsers system folder.

    EXAMPLE: Non-Administrators Local Group Policy

    10. Navigate to and select where (ex: Desktop) you want to save this MSC to, type in a file name (ex: "Local Group Policies for non-Administrators") you want for the MSC, and click/tap on Save. (see screenshot below)

    Apply Local Group Policy to Non-Administrators in Windows 10 [​IMG]

    11. You will now only need to open this non-administrators Local Group Policy MSC (ex: "Local Group Policies for non-Administrators") whenever you want to configure policy settings that are only applied to all users that are not a member of the Administrators group. (see screenshots below)

    Note Steps 1 to 10 above were only required to create this non-administrators Local Group Policy MSC.

  3. Applying group policy settings on standalone Windows 10 PC

    I am creating a user account for my daughter and want to restrict access for that account to various tools / programs. I have created a group policy for non-administrators using mmc / group policy object, and have set the 'Prohibit access to Control Panel
    and PC settings' within that group to enabled. However, my daughters account still has access to the control panel and settings app, so the group policy is obviously not being applied.

    I am using Windows 10 Pro (upgraded from Windows 7 Ultimate), am logged in as the only administrator account, and my computer is a standalone PC not part of a domain.

    I would be very grateful for any help in getting the local group policy to apply.

    Many thanks in advance

    Hello Sam, *Smile

    Your screenshot of the Local Group Policy Editor is normal when you have "Local Computer Policy" selected in the left pane.

    You'll need to do the rest of the steps in Option One to see if you have any policies configured.

    GROUP POLICIES IN WINDOWS 10

    You can change Group Policies by opening Group Policy Editor first. You can open it by following these steps:

    • Log in an administrator account. If you are already logged in as an administrator, proceed to step 2.
    • Press Windows + R to open Run.
    • Type gpedit.msc and press Enter.

    After opening Group Policy Editor, you can now make the necessary changes that you want.

    Should you have more concerns, feel free to post.

    Regards.

  6. Windows 10 error: "Windows couldn't connect to the Group Policy Client service. Please consult your system administrator"

    Hi Rico,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community, we appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    I understand the inconvenience you are facing with accessing the operating system.

    Do let us know the following to assist you better:

    • Which edition of Windows Operating System are you using?
    • What all the troubleshooting steps have you performed?
    • Have you installed all the pending updates on your Operating System?
    • Have you installed any third-party anti-virus software on your system?

    I suggest you to try few of the below troubleshooting steps and check if it helps.

    I suggest you to Stop the Group Policy service, restart and set it to Automatic.

    Group Policy Client service, this service is responsible for applying settings configured by administrators for the computers and users through the Group Policy component. If the service
    is disabled the settings will be applied and applications and components will not be manageable through Group Policy.

    Step 1: Stop the Group Policy Client service.

    • Press Windows Key + R on the keyboard and type
      services.msc
      , Services window gets opened.
    • Search for Group Policy Client service, right click on it and click on
      Stop.
    • Restart the computer.

    Step 2: Start the service and set it to automatic:

    • Press Windows Key + R on the keyboard and type
      services.msc
      , Services window gets opened.
    • Search for Group Policy Client service, right click on it and click on
      Properties.
    • Start the service, set
      Startup type to Automatic.

    Hope it helps. Reply to the post with an updated status of this issue for further assistance.
