Office first run message First things first

If you have standalone machines with users who have no administrator rights.
When the user clicks to first run on a Office application, they get the message “First things first”.
With the following options:
– Use recommended settings
– Install updates only
– Ask me later

If the user select some one and after “Accept” there will prompt a UAC message. So an administrator needed to set the settings.

But after a Task sequence, you will not get a message for users.

And you want to use HKLM registry keys and not HKCU keys.

So you can add the following regkeys:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Office\15.0\User Settings\MyCustomUserSettings]
“Count”=dword:00000001

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Office\15.0\User Settings\MyCustomUserSettings\Create]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Office\15.0\User Settings\MyCustomUserSettings\Create\Software]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Office\15.0\User Settings\MyCustomUserSettings\Create\Software\Microsoft]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Office\15.0\User Settings\MyCustomUserSettings\Create\Software\Microsoft\Office]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Office\15.0\User Settings\MyCustomUserSettings\Create\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Office\15.0\User Settings\MyCustomUserSettings\Create\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Common]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Office\15.0\User Settings\MyCustomUserSettings\Create\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Common\General]
“ShownFirstRunOptIn”=dword:00000001
“ShownFileFmtPrompt”=dword:00000001

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Office\15.0\User Settings\MyCustomUserSettings\Create\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\FirstRun]
