GPO to set Intranet Zone Sites

Hello

I have created a GPO to set approx 5 sites to go into our Intranet Zone Sites in IE.

The GPO is only being applied to a single user so far.

When I check the site list in IE Settings it is empty, not showing any of the sites, and appears to be grey'ed out.  I am unable to manually add sites

However, when I check the registry for the test user all the sites are showing as the Intranet Zone.

Any idea why this would be?  I need to confirm one way or another if the GPO is working correctly

Thanks in advance

First of all
Check group policy modeling for the test user
and on user's workstations run gpupdate /force, check application log on the workstation and run the gpresult on the worksation, maybe for some reason GPO is not applied properly.
Logoff/Logon user and reboot workstation, try other workstation

I think from GPO you have blocked users access to intranet sites zone

Check if any applied GPO has blocked above settings and undone if required

I think we want to stop users from manually being able to add sites anyway, as its controlled by admin.  However, i am confused as although the sites we added show in the registry they don't show in IE.

I think they don't show simply because we don't allow users to change the settings, but I wasn't sure...

If sites are showing through registry, they are already there

Try below
Ask your admin to add new site in local intranet zone
Then run gpupdate /force on domain controller and client as well
Then check again client registry and find out if it reflects newly added site
