    Is there any site that maintains a detailed listing of all group
    members that are recommended by Microsoft to be in each specific
    Group Policy setting, along with an explanation for each one of
    those members why it needs to be included?

  2. Not that I'm aware of. Policies are created to address issues and ideas
    that you have. And although there's recommended practices regarding
    implementing them, there's no real recommended settings that you have to
    use. Anything that Microsoft want, is already configured in the DDP and

    The main things are user rights, etc.

    Just being a nit picker, but group policy has nothing to do with groups or
    members. It is a group of policies and settings.
    You probably already know that, but it is good not to use confusing language.

    Looking at Security Policy in group policy, just to focus on one section,
    the entities that you add to most of these settings are users, user groups,
    or computers. As everyone's member list for these settings seem to be
    somewhat different, it would be awfully nice to see any well-documented
    articulation of why a given author selected all of the members, and what are
    the implications of putting one group in or out for a given setting.

  5. Ah, you're referring to the user rights, etc.

    I don't know if there's a document discussing each option -I would think
    there is. There is a document that discusses all Administrative Templates.

    What you are usually seeing are the defaults, plus anything else added by
    application installations, etc.
