Tips: How effective Group Policy should be at logon in Windows

For both domain and workgroup, the Fast Logon Optimization feature is set by default. If you start the computer or log on to it, this setting will cause policy to be asynchronously applied. This result is similar to the background refresh. Besides, it is able to reduce the amount of time it takes for the logon dialog box to appear and the amount of time it takes for the desktop to become available to the user. This is one of the advantages. Moreover, it also means that the user may log on and start working before the absolute latest policy settings that have been applied to the system.
It is required to disable Fast Logon Optimization depending upon your environment. It is possible doing with Group Policy, using the Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon policy setting. To access this setting:

First, open the Group Policy Object Editor
Now, under Computer Configuration in the navigation tree on the left side, navigate to Administrative Templates\System\Logon. Here, enabling and disabling the settings as easy as possible.
