OU GPO not applying to user

By lucas_ng ·
I have created an OU and place a user, "testpc" in the OU container, then created a computer configuration GPO, and applied that GPO to the OU. But it does not take effect to the user. If I applied the user configuration GPO to the OU, it works well with the user. Why is it so?

Because Computer Configurations ONLY apply to computer accounts and not user accounts. This is done so incase you have many users on one machine, you only have to put that one machine into the OU instead of each user.
