Windows 8.1 Logon Script Delay

When joining Windows 8.1 or Windows Server 2012 R2 to your domain environment, you will experience delayed execution of logon scripts. By default, these Microsoft operating systems have 5 minutes preconfigured delay of execution of logon scripts. With this kind of behavior, Microsoft wanted to eliminate poorly written logon script from overall logon user experience and user's desktop responsiveness.
This behavior can be changed using following GPO setting: Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > Group Policy > Configure Logon Script Delay :

Logon Script Delay can be changed by increments of one minute or setting it to zero which will disable this feature and logon scripts will execute as were in previous operating system versions.
