    Why don't you start by telling us when happens when you try it.

      found the answer...

      take an example: need to add 10 users from 10 different OUs to a newly created (or existing) security group.

      First thing that comes to the mind is to right click on the group object and you see the option Add to a group.
      But here you cannot add users...

      And the answer is click Properties -- Members tab-- Add..

      Why Add to a group means that you can add groups to a group only and not users?
      I guess it would be more appropriate to have Users and then Groups selections under the Add to a group.

        sorry joe,

        from my initial post it was not clear what was my problem when right clicking....
        I did a screenshot but for some reason I could not attach it (was just 30K png file) (upload of file fail). So may be my previous answer to my question will let you understand what was my problem.

          I think you have things the wrong way around - right clicking on an object and selecting "add to a group" will let you add that object to a different group
          If I understand you, you are right clicking on the group to which you want to add the users - you need to right click on the user and add to the group

            this is exactly what I need and got it finally right (I guess ,

            I gave an example:

            the need is: add 10 users from 10 OUs to a group...
            Isn't crazy to find each user and add it to a group.

            Sure it is more straight forward to add users by selecting one group.
            The Add to group is confusing... and could be more user friendly
            But when you right click a group -- properties -- members tab...
            Voila, here users can be easily added.

            I am not talking about adding 100 users but 10 from different OUs.

              I'm not sure how add to group could be more friendly to be honest. It does exactly what it says, adds a user/group to a specified group.
