Office 2010 Deployment

kieran_stoney used Ask the Experts™
I am currently in the process of deploying office 2010. I have it installed on a test machine it is working correctly apart from when i open word the user is prompted to select the default file type. I have searched through group policy and have been unable to find a way of setting this. Is there a way of configuring this option using group policy?

Thanks in advance

1. Click on the ‘Office Button’ at the top left corner of your Word 2010 document’s window. This will take you to the Backstage View.
2. Click on ‘Options’
3. Click on the ‘Save’ tab.
4. In the ‘Save documents’ section  click on the drop down menu of ‘Save files in this format’. Choose a  file format from the list.

Does setting a value here also set the start up default?  If it is not in the save box, it might be one of these options.  See if you can get it to act the way you want locally before looking at a GP,
