- [Voiceover] In this section,…I'm going to do a few demonstrations…regarding setting permissions on groups.…First, I'll need to create a test group to work with.…So off the Start Menu, I'll type in group,…and then I'm gonna go to the setting for…Edit local users and groups.…And in the menu on the left, I'll highlight Groups,…then in the middle pane,…I'll right-click and select New Group,…I need to give the group a name,…and I'm just gonna go with TestGroup.…
A description is not required.…I would like to add one member to this group,…so I'll click on the Add button.…It's asking me what location I would like to add from,…so I'll click on the Locations button,…and select the name of my Windows 10 PC,…and then I'll type in TestUser…because that is the user I would like to add.…I'll hit Okay, that looks good, and so I'll hit Create.…I'll need to close that and now in the background we see…TestGroup has been created.…
We can close the Local Users and Groups window.…Then I'll go back to my Securing Windows 10 folder…
