Office 2016 Administration Templates and Conversion Tool

OfcLogoTextSmallIn case you missed it the Office 2016 ADMX templates are no longer part of the Office Resource Kit like previous version.

You can download the ADMX files here

Also, if you have a bunch of Office 2013 GPO setting you want to copy across to Office 2016 policy you can also there is a PowerShell script on GitHub that will convert any of the configured settings from 2013 to 2016. Very handy if you don’t like having to re-creation all you Office GPO setting by hand. See
