When deploying Office 365 Click-to-Run then I want to remove as many as possible popup for the end users – there for this guide.

First download the “Office 2016 Administrative Template files (ADMX/ADML) and Office Customization Tool” from Microsoft : https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=49030

Update your GPO Central Store with the downloaded ADMX/ADML files.

First thing that the user see is this

office_welcome

This can be removed by this GPO

User Configuration -> Policies -> Administrative Templates -> Microsoft Office 2016 -> First Run

Then the user get this

Activation

This can be removed by this GPO

User Configuration -> Policies -> Administrative Templates -> Microsoft Office 2016 -> Subscription Activation

GPO1


Then the user get this

office_first_things

This can be removed this GPO

User Configuration -> Policies -> Administrative Templates -> Microsoft Office 2016 -> Privacy -> Trust Center

Then the user get this

office_first_things - 1

User Configuration -> Preferences -> Windows Settings -> Registry

GPO3GPO4

HKEY_CURRENT_USER
Key path         Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Registration
Value name    AcceptAllEulas
Value type       REG_DWORD
Value data      1


And at last we in the EU get this

office_file_types User Configuration -> Preferences -> Windows Settings -> Registry

GPO6

GPO7

HKEY_CURRENT_USER
Key path         Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Common\General
Value name   ShownFileFmtPrompt
Value type       REG_DWORD
Value data      1


And now all you have to do is deploy you new GPO the Office 2016 users.
