    Organising Group policies?

    I've always wondered about doing this, but is it possible to consolidate all the settings for Microsoft office and it's sub programs into one folder?

    Basically this is what it looks like now when you look at the root of administrative templates:
    Control Panel
    Desktop
    Google
    Microsoft Access 2010
    Microsoft Excel 2010
    Microsoft Office 2010

    and so on....

    What I'd prefer is to be able to consolidate the office ones so that it looked more like this:
    Control Panel
    Desktop
    Google
    Microsoft Office 2010
    Network

    Then upon opening Microsoft Office 2010 it gave you Excel, Word, etc.

    Is that possible to do? Seems like a right mess the way it is at the moment

    EDIT: to be honest i wish control panel, network, desktop, start menu and taskbar were all under the windows components section too! Seems daft having everything so split up

    Yep, Just set all the settings in one GPO. The only reason I have multiple GPO's on an OU is becuase I have some software that only needs to be deployed to a speficic group of PC's By setting the GPO on the root of my computers OU's and only applying it to a specific group the software is deployed to the correct PC's no matter what sub OU they are in.
