Once again i’ve created another Powershell (XAML) application.
This time i’m releasing Office Addin Manager, which allows you to manage Office addins on your own or a remote computer. As always, changing registry settings on a remote computer requires you to have administrative permissions on that computer.
With this tool you can in a quick manner change the load behavior of Office addins no matter the Office application, no more messing around in regedit or manually open each Office application.
Windows 10 is great isn’t? But in some cases a slight modification is needed. In my case, we needed to make sure that Outlook, Excel, Word, PowerPoint and Internet Explorer always started on the primary monitor.
This script was created to make sure that your Inbox or a super secret document, doesn’t open on a external monitor, such as a projector etc.
In this case i have found 9 registry values that control the position of these applications, and with this script i simply remove this keys, and by doing this the applications will now start on your primary monitor.
It would probably be a better idea to remove these registry keys by GPO, but i have created this script to give you a hint of what can be done.
If you find out our more registry values that control other common applications startup locations, feel free to comment them below to help others.
Verified to work on Windows 10 1709 (16299), Office 2016 and Internet Explorer 11.
