Can someone tell me how to import a GPO? I tried following these instructions:

But I dont see an option for the "import settings wizard"

I am on a Windows 2008 server.

What do you mean you don't see the "Import Settings Wizard"? How far do you get? Can you screenshot what you have?

To import settings from a Group Policy object
-In the Group Policy Management Console (GPMC) console tree, expand the Group Policy Objects node in the forest and domain containing the Group Policy object (GPO) to import settings.
-Right-click the GPO and click Import Settings .
-Follow the instructions in the Import Settings Wizard .

These are the instructions but when I right click the GPO there is no import settings.

You need to go to Group policy object container and in GPO template you will get import setting.

Back Up, Restore, Import, and Copy Group Policy Objects

Thanks Sand,
  I need to import some IE settings. Would you use it as a user policy or computer policy?
