GPO on certain users

I want to apply a GPO to restrict them from downloading and running any files. they can browse the internet but not download nor run any files.

I have a total of 10 users, only two will be exclude from that policy.

Should I create a new OU and move the users to that OU and create that policy, or what is the best way to accomplish that?

"Create a group and add all the users to AD group.
You can create a policy and add the user group to Security Filtering in GPO and it will work for group of users."

I've created a group where do I apply the gpo on it. on the GPO management window I can see the security group I've created
