Adding an OPS file to a transform (MST file) is a convenient way to deploy a collection of custom settings throughout your organization. Settings contained in the OPS file are implemented when users install Office. These settings apply to every user who logs on by using that computer. This article describes how you can create a custom transform (MST file) that contains an OPS file with customized profile settings.
Before you create an OPS file, you must start each Office program on a test computer and set all the options that you want for your users. You can set most options by using the Options command (on the Tools menu). To customize toolbars and menus, use the Customize command (Tools menu). After you customize the Office programs, you run the Profile Wizard to save the settings to an OPS file.
To save settings to an OPS file:
Run the Profile Wizard.
On the Save or Restore Settings page, select Save the settings from this machine, and then type the name and path for the OPS file.
Select the check boxes next to the Office XP programs that you want to include in your OPS file.
