Q: Word 2013 Configuring online content access This thread is locked from future replies

Hi All,

I'm trying to configure Word 2013 to allow access to Insert \ Online Pictures \ Clip Art as an internet resource, yet suppress other internet services such as File \ Account \ Connected Services \ Storage | Other Sites | Office Store.

The only GPO I have found that affects these settings is Microsoft Office 2013/Tools | Options | General | Service Options.../Online Contentshow which edits the reg key 

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\software\policies\microsoft\office\15.0\common\internet]
"useonlinecontent"=dword:00000000

Configuring the GPO to Allow Office to connect to the Internet enables both Online Pictures, and Account \ Connected Services.  Disabling the GPO turns them both off.

Is it possible to suppress Connected Services while allowing Online pictures?

Any advice appreciated.

Thanks,

Matt

A:

Thanks for the response Nayana,

This is now resolved.

Setting the reg key [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\software\policies\microsoft\office\15.0\common\signin] signinoptions to a value of 3 disables 'connected services' in Word | File | Account whilst leaving clipart 'Online Pictures' able to connect to the internet (as well as other internet enabled buttons on the ribbon).

The useonlinecontent key needs to be set to 3 (Allow Office to connect to the internet).

Best regards,

Matt
