net user /comment - thanks, that worked.
Removed comment (in elevated shell) and default became None.
Readded comment with Users and that became the default.
Will leave that there, as seeing None=="local non-domain accounts" bugs me,
and it seems stupid to default anything to local non-domain accounts only.
Is there a better consistent choice of dynamic group having elevated rights
on both local and domain systems than 544 e.g. 114 or 405504 or ?
