What is the method to access GPO and Local users on a windows 8.1 machine? Typing in gpedit.mmc or trying to add it in the snap in doesn't work as it keeps referring to using the user accounts in the control panel.

I get an error message every time I try it. Even when trying to add it in the management console I get referred to the UAC which gives me nothing.

So basically you are saying there is no way to edit group policy at all in Windows 8?
