The Local Group Policy Editor is a powerful tool that gives users running Windows 10 Pro or Enterprise a relatively easy way to customize advanced options that are usually not configurable through the Settings app (or Control Panel).
However, on a shared computer scenario, no matter whether you use "Computer Configuration" or "User Configuration," policy changes will always apply to every user account on your device, and there isn't an option to assign those changes to specific users.
If you're looking to change advanced settings on Windows 10, but you want to apply them to a specific user or group, you can still accomplish this task using the Microsoft Management Console (mmc.exe).
In this Windows 10 guide, we walk you through the steps to apply policy changes only to a particular user or group.
