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

1.Copy the 2010 Office system policy template files to your computer.

2.Under Computer Configuration or User Configuration in the console tree, right-click Administrative Templates.

3.Click Add/Remove Templates and then click Add.

4.In the Policy Templates dialog box, click the template that you want to add and then click Open.

5.After you add the templates that you want, click Close.

6.Open the Group Policy object (GPO) for which you want to set policy.

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.
