Anyone knows How to use GPO management tool to export GPOs? I don't see any option to do that when I right click on a GPO.

Do you have GPMC installed, you can backup GPOs using that tool
GPMC also has some nice built-in scripts if you prefer the command line.  More on those scripts here:

By the way for a 2008 box you have to add GPMC (add feature)

To be more specific, you can not right-click on a GPO under an OU to back it up.

To back up a GPO: Expand the "Group Policy Objects" folder which contains a list of all GPOs. There you can right-click on any GPO to back it up to a specified location.
