Help with a registry setting via GPO

I am trying to Update a registry setting for all users on a computer to hide the Windows 10 search bar in the taskbar. I'm using GPO and have set the following under Computer Configuration > Preferences > Windows Settings > Registry and linked it to OU=A

Action: Update
Key path: Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Search
Value Name: SearchboxTaskbarMode
Value type: REG_DWORD
Value data: 00000000  (Hex)

The computer is in OU=A, the user is in OU=B - the policy doesn't seem to apply.
If I login as a user in OU=A, it works.

I'm sure it is something simple, what am I missing? No matter who logs on to that computer, I want the Search box in taskbar hidden.
