Add local users via GPO

Last Modified: 2016-03-04
I'm trying to both add a local user account and reset the local admin account across my domain.  I understand that I can no longer do this via Group Policy Preference.  From what I'm reading most people are accomplishing this through powershell commands then dropping the commands into their logon script.  I'm pretty weak with powershell, can someone assist me with this please.
