Prevent users from changing user name in word 2010 RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi

    we have domain and we have some clients that office 2010 have installed on them . By default when a user opens word 2010 , the user name reads from active directory but users can go to file ==> option ==> general and change the user name . I load office and word 2010 administrative templates in group policy on domain controller , how can i prevent users from changing the user name ?

    thanks a lot

  • Hi,

    Group Plicy has no option to prevent user change UserInfo.

    I only find the registry entry to change UserInfo(UserInitials, UserName), it located to following path:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\Common\UserInfo

    The UserInfo is String Value,  it seems cannot block.

    As my test, if the new user login computer, and start Office program fist time, Office will prompt dialog box let user change UserInfo.

    You can also check this thread, hope this helps:
