Another way to disable a policy is to disable an unused part of the GPO. When you do this, you block the Computer Configuration or User Configuration settings, or both, and don’t allow them to be applied. By disabling part of a policy that isn’t used, the application of GPOs and security will be faster.
You can enable and disable policies partially or entirely by following these steps:1.
In the GPMC, select the container for the site, domain, or OU with which you want to work.2.
Select the policy object you want to work with, and then click the Details tab in the right pane.3.
Choose one of the following status settings from the GPO Status list and click OK when prompted to confirm that you want to change the status of this GPO:All Settings Disabled
