We were rolling out Office 2013 to many users. When testing, we noticed that by default the toolbars in Office applications (Word, Outlook etc) were not pinned. Users would have to press ctrl + F1 to pin the toolbar. Not a major problem, but we ideally we wanted to pin the toolbars by default as this is how our users are used to working.
After looking through Group Policy (admx templates for Office 2013), there was no setting to control this behaviour... We therefore had to look for a reg fix.
After a bit of investigation, I found the registry keys that control the pinning and unpinning of toolbars.
Using group policy, push out the following keys. You can do this via
1) Copying the below into notepad and saving as a .reg file. You can then run this as part of a logon script.
2) Or (my personal preferred method) add the registry entries using Group Policy Preferences
The GPO that you add these registry settings to will need to be linked to the OU containing the users (as they are user policies and not computer policies)
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
