Windows Creating and editing group policy

Group policies can be applied on a domain or an Organisational Unit, to apply a group policy in a windowsdomain environment, do the following.

On a domain controller open "Active directory Users and computers"

NOTE: As said above you can apply a GP to an OU in this instance we will deal with a domain GP, if you are concerned with a GP for an OU insert the "OU name" instead of the "Domain Name"

1. Locate the domain (top of the Tree) and right click it, then select "Properties"
2. Select the group policy Tab.
3. You will see the Default domain policy (and any other policies applied at this level)
4. You can create another domain policy by clicking "New" giving it a name and configuring it"
5. Ensure the default domain policy is highlighted and select "Edit" (unless you are working on another policy)
6. The Group policy object editor will open.
7. You can now edit the policy and close the editor when you are finished.
8. Back in the domain properties click "apply" and "OK"

Ok the User Configuration section got to Internet Explorer Maintenance and URLS>Important URLS.  You can set your default page there, and a number of other items as well.  Remember that EVERYONE will have that as their default because if you are changing the default domain policy.
