    Server: Windows Server 2012 R2
    Cliënts: Windows 10 Pro
    Office version: 2016

    I’m want to change the location where the deleted items of a shared mailbox are saved. According to several websites i can do this bij creating a DWORD value in the following registry key;


    Locally on the workstations i can find this key, but i want to create a GPO that creates the value on every computer in the domain. When i create a GPO and edit it, i cannot find the registry key for Office anywhere.

    It only goes as far as HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoft and then no Office exists. Also in the HKEY_Local_Machine i cannot find it anywhere. Any help would be appreciated.


    Does the computer where you are editing the GPO have office installed – if not, the path wont exist (on that computer)
    Install GPMC and GPEdit on a computer with the correct version(s) of Office


    Or you can use the Registry wizard to navigate to a PC with Office already installed and a user logged on, and pick up the value from there.


    Browsing the registry is to make it easier but you can just type in the key path. So if you’re looking for a setting that is only on the workstations, you can just type in the path, set the type and value and it will apply correctly, even if you don’t see the key on the local computer where you’re doing the configuration.
