    Office and ribbon customizing

    We've come to a bit of a problem, staff want to customize the ribbon and have the same settings every time they login, problem is they are all on mandatory profiles so these settings revert to a fixed state every time they log off again, can anyone recommend a solution to this?

    Not an option and never will be, any other ideas?

    I'm after something like redirecting the location word saves it's defaults or something so they could save a defaults file in to their home folder and when they load word it loads those defaults....something along those lines anyway, possible or not?

    Not sure if a redirected Application data would do it?

    A question: If they have mandatory profiles which give a standard look and feel, giving the options for customization is the complete opposite?
