    When I open Word or Excel, there is a dialog box that pops up , called “Default File Types

    Can I set it so that the workstations don’t see that dialog box and that the first option (Office OpenXML formats) is choosen, without any user interaction ?

    As far as I am finding, it is easy (through a registry key) to make it disappear, so that the users don’t see that pop-up, but I am not sure then how to make it so that the first options is applied.

    Many thanks in advance.


    How about pushing out the key through Group Policy Preferences?


    Thanks Ossian. As I mentioned, that key make it disappear, but does not choose the first option automatically, as far as I am finding.
