Basic steps are this.

1. Create an OU were the users reside that you want to add the policy to.
2. Create a GPO and link it to this OU (the setting is a user setting, hence why you need to connect it to a users OU).
3. Setup the prefered settings you would like to add. Do make sure to go to User configuration.

Here is also a good reference link.
