Impact of changing the scope of a GPO

I have a Group Policy Object that is linked to an OU in Active Directory and deploys some software

In the 'Scope' tab of the GPO, the security filtering has been set to deploy to only a few machines.

My question is; If I change the scope to deploy to 'Authenticated Users', will the software uninstall/reinstall on those machines it has already been deployed to?

Nope. If you do not change anything within GPO's policies it does not be installed again on those machines. GPO revision number won't change. You will only modify ACL for that GPO (GPO Filtering exactly saying)

But remember "Authenticated Users" group will apply only to all computers within that OU not in whole domain.

Krzysztof
