Hello there,

We have XenDesktop environment with 200 machines (Wiin 7 32 bit) with Office 2010. We have a problem wherein the default language settings in MS Word is set to US, we would like to change it to Australia default (as shown in the screenshot attached).

Is it possible to change it via AD Group Policy? If so how should I go about this?

Please advise.

Thanks and RegardsScreenshot

You may have to change the default language in Windows (not Office)

However, in the window you show in your screenshot,  have you tried clicking English (Australia) and then clicking the "Set as Default" button.
