open the exchange management shell as administrator and run the below command:

Set-OwaMailboxPolicy -Identity Default -PublicFoldersEnabled $false

For ease of administering you can create a new policy and apply that as well.

Step A: New-OwaMailboxPolicy -Name 'No PF Access'

Step B: Set-OwaMailboxPolicy -Identity "No PF Access" -PublicFoldersEnabled $false

Thanks & Regards

No need to create a new policy and edit it, simply edit the default policy as I mentioned in my comment and this is acceptable as in technet, see the second example in the below link:

m y suggestion was in case if they might want to manage it for others in the future.. apart from this you are absolutely correct
Marwan OsmanCommented:
he needs to apply it for all users hence on the organization level (which is the default policy) mentioned in my first comment
