    Group policy - loading default Office 2010 settings on local profiles

    Hi,

    I have Server 2008 R2 with Windows7 clients and office 2010.

    Users have local profiles, how do I go about getting Office 2010 applications like word to load straight away without it looking like the first time the user has opened it?

    From what I remember, if you merge the following registry fragment at login, that should do it:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\Common \UserInfo]
    "Company"="Schoolname"
    "UserName"="User"
    "UserInitials"="U"

    As well as @jdmackay's registry element (I set it in User Config>Prefs>Windows Settings>Registry and used %UserName%), I've got User Config>Policies>Admin Templates>Office 2010/Misc>"Supress recommended settings dialog" enabled.
