A customer is not seeing the "Save As" in Excel - see attached.  

How do I add it back?  

If I want to use Group Policy to add it back, what location should I look?

Thanks.

I can click the down arrow to launch the customer quick access toolbar and click more commands to add the "save as" button in the ribbon.  

I need to do this on 500 computers.  Anyone knows the group policy way?

No points, but this document may help you with modifying the group policy.

That's not it, Glenn.  

At this point, I have tried export in Quick Access Toolbar and place the "Excel Customizations.exportedUI" file under "C:\users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Office but it does not work.  

I have read https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/ee704589(v=office.14).aspx but not sure what to do next after I export the Quick Access Toolbar file - Excel Customizations.exportedUI.

The .exportUI is only used with the import/export dialogue. The QAT customizaton file is named "Excel.officeUI" and likely under

C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Office

You can also customize the specific Excel file to always show this on the QAT bar.

Of course users can always use the File menu with Save As (one extra click).

  Best wishes.
