"GPO Guy",

Thank you for the great website!...VERY informative!


I was wondering if you could lead me to the Microsoft documentation (and
if you could answer) explaining if GPOs get applied to computers
(laptops) not connected to a domain/network. I have set some IE settings
for our organization, and have a group that use laptops and work
remotely (from home) at times. I want them to be able to not have the
proxy configurations while not connected to the network. Is there a way
to configure GP to not apply when not connected to the network (other
than creating a local policy setting for IE)?

Thanks for all your help!
