Office Colour Scheme/Theme failing to persist when Personalized

Version 2

    Introduction

    When Office is personalized, the colour scheme/theme fails to persist.

     

    Detail

    When Office is personalized, you would expect the colour scheme to be persisted.

     

    When launching Office in a second session prior to capturing personalization data, it appears to launch in the colour scheme that it was set to by the user, but switches back to the default instantly.

     

    To work around this issue, please make the below modifications to the default MS Office Application Group within User Personalization.

     

    Remove the below key from the Exclude section of Office Application Group:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Common\Roaming\Identities

     

     

    Remove the below keys from the Include section of the Office Application Group:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Common\Roaming\Identities\*_AD

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Common\Roaming\Identities\Anonymous

     

     

    Add the below key to the Include section of the Office Application Group:
