To make User Configuration settings that usually apply to a computer apply to all of the users that log in to that computer, enable loopback processing.

Create GPOs for the View component group policy settings and link them to the OU that contains your View desktops.

Verify that the Microsoft MMC and the Group Policy Object Editor snap-in are available on your Active Directory server.

Merge

The user policy settings applied are the combination of those included in both the computer and user GPOs. Where conflicts exist, the computer GPOs take precedence.
