    windows 8

    They can definitely show the teachers a thing or 2!
    I'm going to make all the recovery disks needed, however I am going to be creating one definitive tablet, with all the correct settings and software on and then making an image of that tablet and I'll clone all the other tablets to that image, at least that's the plan!
    if all goes wrong on one I can just refer to that image and it will be ready to use again in as short amount of time possible!

    We already have a good amount of iPads for use with the children so I know how destructive they can be! hopefully ill lock these down enough before they get their hands on them!

    To get individual Group Policies for only specific users and groups, or machine specific, you will have to join them to a domain and setup Active Directory.

    The Local Group Policies (gpedit.msc) is global (affects everything and everyone) only to that PC for which it is run on.

    I have not played with Group Policies in a long time.
