Hi guys,

Can you please help me answer this question? Can GPO permit *signed* macros in Office applications to be enabled by default. Initially for Excel, but if it can be done for all Office apps (excel, word, etc) too.

Thanks for your help.

Hi,

It is possible thru GPO. You should download and install administrative templates for the version of office software. You could download Administrative Template files for Office 2010 from the following link.

You can go thru the following link to find out how to configure Administrative Template.

The following link has the snapshot for this configuration for Word 2010.
