Assuming you are using it in a domain evironment - you will have to distribute it out.

do i just put them in the root folder from the screen shot, or do i create the policy and then stick them in that folder

.admx file should be there and .adml (if any) should be placed on folder based on the locale .e.g en-US for English (US)
