Right now we have two OU's, one for Workstations and one for users. All current GPOs are applied to both of them. I have a new GPO (with computer and user configuration settings) that I would like to apply to a set of users and their machines. Without having to move them, is there an easy way I can apply this new GPO to their user account and workstation?

I suggest create a new OU named test and move a user and computer, then link the policies that you want to test.
