Issue with GPOs

I created a GPO to turn off the notification and action center. I link it to the folded containing all domain computers and enforce it and it doesn't work. If put the same info in the default domain policy and it works. Can anybody explain why this would happen? I have several other GPOs that don't work as well. I don't want to put everything in the default domain GPO

Hi,
Before going further,we’d better confirm the difference between Computer Configuration and User configuration. Computer Configuration in Group Policy is applied to computers, regardless of who logs on to the computers. User Configuration in Group Policy is applied to users, regardless of which computer they log on to. If we set the settings collide with each other in Computer Configuration and User Configuration in one GPO, the Computer configuration will override the User Configuration. For details, please refer to the following article.

User Configuration

Based on my experience , the policy 'turn off the notification and action center 'is based on user settings, it can be applied to users only, not computers.

So when you link to the OUs(containing the computers),it will not applied. When you configured it through the default domain policy , it applied to all the domain users .

Best Regards,
