Open up Group Policy Management Console > Find the OU your domain computers are in > right-click and click on 'Link and existing GPO' > choose your new policy

That should do it.

@Muhammad, thanks for your quick response. Do I link it to the default Domain policy?

No it shouldn't. What other policies do you have that would possibly conflict?
