I‘m going to share an (ab)use of a Windows feature which can result in bypassing User Group Policy (as well as a few other interesting things). Bypassing User Group Policy is not the end of the world, but it’s also not something that should be allowed and depending on User Group Policy setup, could result in unfortunate security scenarios. This technique has been tested against Windows 7 and Windows 10 Enterprise x64 (10.18363 1909) and does not require admin access. Leveraging this trick has to do with how the user account registry is loaded upon login, so let’s start this off by understanding a bit about what happens when a user logs into a Windows account.
A lot of text which I don't copy here.
But it's very interesting - even for non technical guys
