Group Policy computer settings not applied (filtering: denied security)

Hey Experts!  Not sure why I am making this so difficult but I need another (or many other) sets of eyes to figure this out.

Rolling out PointPrint to our office and currently in pilot/proof of concept phase.  I created a Group Policy [Win10_PointPrint], assigned Security Filtering to: domain\PointPrint group (where my pilot user accounts are listed) and configured various user and computer settings.

What I'm seeing now is that none of the computer settings are applying.  GPResult as an admin shows the Win10_PointPrint computer settings filtering: denied (security).  

How can I apply the computer settings to the pilot group?  If I use Authenticated Users instead of the pilot group, my fear is that everyone in our enterprise would get the policy. 

Help, guidance and patience appreciated!

Further research shows removing Authenticated Users from the GP may cause problems as users aren't able to "read" the GP properly.  I'm adding them back but unchecking the "Apply GP".  Updates forthcoming.

I think there should be an award for questions that stump the Experts on this site.

Useful info here (still researching while I wait for Experts from this site and the AD folks here to reply):  https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/windows/desktop/policy/filtering-the-scope-of-a-gpo
