In order to see the properties of an account, you would select it and click on the properties button to see the following window.

On the Group Membership tab of the USER property sheet you would see three selections to choose from regarding group memberships.

The OTHER drop down window lists all of the LOCAL groups that the user could belong to.

The OTHER drop down window lists only the local groups, regardless of whether you have chosen a user account in the local accounts database or a domain account that is in the domain.

From the ADVANCED tab you can perform functions such as managing passwords that are in the local database or using the .NET PASSPORT WIZARD to add a .NET passport to one or more Windows XP Professional user accounts..

Selecting ADVANCED from the Advanced User Management section simply launches the Local Users and Groups MMC as if you typed lusrmgr.msc from the RUN box or from a command line.

The secure logon section is where you would require local users to press CTRL+ALT+DEL to begin a session.
