You can use permissions on the GPO itself, however I normally don'd use
permissions, rather I like to create an OU structure grouping security
principles to link GPOs for those principles (such as user accounts).

I assume you are not talking about the Default Domain Policy or the Default
Domain Controller policies. You don't want to alter those policies, or it
can cause major problems.

Hello chinwan,

You have to use permissions on the GPO or security filtering. Personal i
like to have the OU structure built for my needs like described from Ace,
so i don't have to play around also with that perissions.

Best regards

And if you still want to use GPO security filtering, here is an example:

Hi
Before start applying GPO settings to your users/computers, make sure that
you understand what a GPO is and how it works... You don't want to start
crashing users/computers by doing configurations that you don't understand.
You may start here:
