I've got a group policy for Office 2010
It does various things things but somehow I've disabled the File, Options option
I've gone back through thte policy about 200 times and can't see where I've done it
It's disabled in all applications which makes me think it's specific to Office 2010 rather
than excel 2010 or word 2010. I've checked to see if there is a Policy ID for disabling
interface options and there is but there isn't one for Office 2010. I can disable help
section in Word and or excel and or outlook but cant see how the heck I've managed
to disable this across the whole application!

Help please because I'm going insane!

RSOP http://support.microsoft.com/kb/323276 is your friend when messing with GPO's. It lets you see what GPO's a client is actually getting applied in practice, and in what order.

Indeed. RSOP is a good tool, but not really what I'm looking for.
I have numerous policies but Office 2010 is a policy of it's own
and GP appliation isn't the problem as I know it's working fine.

I cannot see a part of the policy that says Disable File Option in Word, Excel Outlook or Office 2010.

I was wondering if someone knew the Office 2010 policy well enough to point out where such a thing
could be rather than troubleshooting.

Anyone?

More precisely, as it appears in Office 2010 ADMX:
Microsoft Office 2010/Disable Items in User Interface
The options checked (there are 6 in total) when this policy is enabled are the ones that you want to block.
