Hello howruaz9...  My question is group policy the appropriate way to do this...The best way is always via groups and folder permissions. Controlling access to folders is not really what group policy designed for.  There is a high likelihood that the same requirement will exist for another user in the future.  Simply place people in that role group to ensure they have restricted access.

Thank you very much XGIS

I totally agree with you. but my job is setup a group of exam laptops. Anyone uses these laptop can visit internet, but can't access internal network shared folder. Can I use group policy to do this?
