McKnife recommended the mmc snap-in for non-administrator policies in gpedit.msc and is working fine. The tutorial for exporting and importing the policies into another computer is not as clear or as simple as it appears.
also why does the non-administrator policies do not show up when you open up gpedit.msc?
is there another simpler solution to export the non-administrator policies to another computer?
all are windows 10 pro.

The non-admins MLGPO manifests itself in the file system at C:\Windows\System32\GroupPolicyUsers\S-1-5-32-545
Please try to copy that folder to an unconfigured machine, restart that machine and see if it works as expected.
