Windows 10 Pro, non-DOMAIN, disable all INTERNET access, including WIFI ?

How can I disable "all INTERNET access, including WIFI"
on the below #4 via gpedit.msc or something else ?

   ** Operating System = Windows 10 Pro
   ** User = 15 year old child
   ** Domain = NO

  1. I login as me since I am a "Local Admin"
  2. All "all INTERNET access, including WIFI"
     fails since I don't need it to work
  3. my 1 year old logs in with NO "Local Admin" rights
  4. All "all INTERNET access, including WIFI" fails

So I am missing something as you said it all fails now.  If you don't want internet just dont connect a network cable and don't connect wifi.

Do you need access to the internal network over either?  In this case the firewall is a better location o restrict access.

There is no reliable way to do this without 3rd party software. That's why there is even a market for parental control software. There are ugly workarounds, but they are easy to break or sidestep.

Maybe don't let your 1 year old use the computer?

Unfortunately things like Mac address filtering DNS filtering that would impact the device no matter who is logged in. It isn't user specific.  That's why 3rd party support is needed.

You can still use it at the device level, by changing the dns settings on the network card of the PC, but if the user has admin access to the pc they can easily change it so that it points to the DNS provided by the ISP.
