Join Timothy Pintello for an in-depth discussion in this video How to configure local users and groups, part of Creating and Managing Group Policy for Windows Server 2012.
- When configuring local users and groups,…there are two tools that you can use.…One of those tools is the User Account Control Panel applet,…and the other tool is the Local Users and Groups snap-in…for the MMC or Microsoft Management Console.…The User Accounts Control Panel applet…is the simplest interface to use.…Unfortunately,…it also has extremely limited access to user accounts.…When using the Control Panel Applet,…you can only create or modify…basic attributes of local user accounts.…
You also cannot create groups or manage group memberships…using the user accounts control panel app.…The Local Users and Groups Snap-In is much more flexible.…This tool provides full access to all…user and group attributes.…It is also one of the tools found in the…Administrative Tools applet in the control panel.…Alternatively, you can load the local users and group…snap-in into your own customized MMC…using the Add/Remove snap-in tool.…
