How to add URLs to the trusted sites through a GPO (DC Windows 2012 - Client Windows 7)

Hi

We were using XP in the past and now we have migrated to Windows 7 and the internet explorer version is 11.  I have created a separate policy for IE 11.
Our DC are windows 2012.

We are going to run a web based test for the students and the vendor sent me a list of URLs and have asked me to add to the  trusted sites .

Please post me tutorials as how to add these websites to the trusted sites through a GPO
Any help much appreciated

Thanks

You'll need to start with the IE11 admin template; Alex Heer is a good write-up and walkthrough located here:

open your Group Policy Management console (gpmc.msc) Create a new policy. Edit the policy, Drill down to:
User Configuration/Policies/Administrative Templates/Windows Components/Internet Control Panel/Security Page
Look for Site to Zone Assignment List and enable it.
In that you will see Enter the zone assignments here. Then add your URL's there giving them the proper zone number. (1-4)
It will tell you what those mean in the page.

Then assign the GPO to which ever OU's you want them to act on.

The downside to Site to Zone Assignment is once the policy is applied, users are no longer able to add their own sites to zones.

Here is a solution that uses registry entries to add sites to zones. It uses vbscript but you can instead use group policy to apply registry keys.
