Managing User Groups
As discussed, aside from personalization the main purpose of user accounts is to grant and maintain permissions and rights to the operating system and files. It is important to know that it is considered bad practice to grant permissions and rights to user accounts directly as this becomes extremely hard to manage. Instead, permissions and rights are granted to the groups that users are members of. Clicking the Groups folder in the left hand pane of the MMC console displays the currently available local groups.
Depending on the version of Windows, various default groups are present, with Windows 2000 and XP having more default groups than Windows NT.
