Office 2013 group policies not applying

I have added a gpo for the office 2013 settings
The settings I have specified dont seem to be getting applied although the settings cant be changed as they are greyed out as they are supposed to be.

If you unset one of the settings in the GPO and you get that setting "un-greyed" out, then your GPO is working. Perhaps you're missing the enabled/disabled meaning of the setting? I've got confused more than once.

In the gpo I have set the the workgroup templates path to the exact same folder as my 0ffice 2010 gpo, but in my word 2013 the field is empty and greyed out

OK. That involves a path. I would like to test it with a more simple setting such as enabled/disabled.
BTW: does the path exist?

Hi Strivoli
Yes the path does exist
I set the gpo for shared paths to not configured and ran gpupdate on my machine and the field in word options was available to set the path. I am entering for the path

\\servername\share$\citynamefolder (each city has tier own templates
 
as I mentioned..its works for the office 2010 adm

If the GPO works on Word 2010 but doesn't work on 2013, perhaps you need to deploy both adms (2010 and 2013).

I do have both deployed. I am just starting the upgrade on 6 power users
The 2010 GP works as designed

strivoliCommented:
Since you deployed both perhaps you did set the 2010 option only. Have you ever used rsop.msc or gpresult in order to check if the policies are applied?
