Change HKCU registry entries via Logon Script in Group Policy.


  • Create Registry.reg file with required registry changes. E.g. following will disable "Download Windows Search" prompt in MS Outlook 2010:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\Search]

    "DisableDownloadSearchPrompt"=dword:00000001

  • Create Registry.bat file with text:
    %systemroot%\regedit /s Registry.reg

  • Open Group Policy object, go to User Configuration > Windows Settings > Scripts > LogonGroup Policy Editor
  • Click on Show Files (this opens a folder in \\domain-name\SysVol\domain-name\Policies\... ) and copy both files you created to that folder.
    Group Policy Editor - Logon Properties
  • Click on Add and select Registry.bat
  • Deploy Group Policy object where required.
