Apply settings to all users in windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm curious if there is a way to set some settings for all users. The main issue is the setting when Word 2010 is first launched for a new user, the user is prompted asking them to use recommended settings, install updates only, or ask later. This might not sound like an issue, but for whatever reason we get 20+ calls a day for simple things like that. I am just trying to minimize the amount of time we have to spend on little issues such as this. I would like to have this option set on one user, and apply to everyone who accesses that computer. Is this possible?

    We have around 3500 computers and 7500 users in our environment. Small things can be a huge issue to some people.

    I hope I posted this in the correct forum.
