The new Office: Deployment Deep Dive Part 2 out of 3, Workarounds for your Office Configuration


Right click “Save as…”

This week marks the second in a three part series, as hosts Jeremy Chapman and Yoni Kirsh, explore specific differences between the MSI and Click-to-Run install and potential workarounds for your Office configuration. From removing and blocking applications from the Office suite, using multiple languages, disabling first run to changing update properties. Hear too from lead Office set-up engineer, Paul Barr.

Important Note: After this show was filmed, the ability to de-select undesired Office applications feature was introduced in the Office Deployment Tool for Click-to-Run.

For more information about Click-to-Run customizations and the specific Group Policies or Registry Keys to enable completely silent and prompt-less first run experiences, check out the Office IT Pro blog at
