Hi all,

I need a detailed explanation(PDF or video) explaining how I can control a specific user account capabilities, limitations from an administrator account?
I want to know how to do it in Vista, XP and Windows 7.

I have some capabilities in mind to configure giving a user the following capabilities
- Open a specific folder or folders and ability to store files in there
- Ability to add a WEB site to favorites
- Abily to create shortcuts to some programs on the desktop
- Enable starting an already installed program
- Adding a new keyboard/language
....

It seems to me that that can be done by a local policy editor which I know almost nothing and have no idea on any of the parameters and and how to configure and activate.

What I need is "Dummy's guide for ...."

Thanks in advance

Well a few things about policies,
1) only useful in pro/business/corp/ultimate editions. not home.
2) even then much more useful when centrally enforced (i.e. across a domain)
