    Creating a custom setup for Office 365 Applications on Install


    In Office 365 for many of the programs such as Word, Excel etc. , there is an option to "show the Start screen when the application starts" that by default is set to ON. On every system where I install Office365 we would like for this option to be UNchecked and instead have the program Start with a Blank Page.
    I have always done this manually in Options but wondered if there wasn’t some registry setting or other than i could employ during the system setup to make these choices a default? I would also like to set the default font to Arial 11pt normal and a few other things that I currently must do manually on each system.
    Is there a specific registry location that once setup, I could exp[ort and then import into each new load of Office 365 to preset all the desired settings? Or some other way to get the whole package arranged for all the programs such as a template? We use a Click-to-run version of Office 365 if it matters.
