I’m confused concerning the difference between the GPO choices of “Disabled” and “Not Configured”. What is the difference?

Although the “Disabled” selection doesn’t mean the same thing in all cases, generally, Disabled will reverse a policy setting that is enacted at a higher level. If a setting is “Not Configured” it means to apply a higher level policy setting. Simply said, “Disabled” reverses a high policy for that particular setting while “Not Configured” does simply nothing.
