Outlook 2010 settings not migrated during SCCM OSD with USMT

I had an issue recently where Outlook 2010 settings and signatures were not being migrated to the new machine when using USMT in conjunction with SCCM OSD. There is a Microsoft hotfix for USMT 4.0 to specifically address this, essentially it is an update of the executables, DLLs and XML files to support the Office 2010 application. See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2023591

Add the classic menu theme to Office 2007 & 2010

After years of using Office 2007 & 2010, sometimes I still wish to go back to the menus of Office 2003 where there were no ribbons. I’ve recently come across a free (for personal use) tool called UBitMenu which allows us to do this.

After downloading the setup from http://www.ubit.ch/software/ubitmenu-languages/ , close all of your Office applications and run the quick setup. Once installed, you will now see a new ‘Menu’ tab in Word, Excel and Powerpoint that will take you back to the familiar menus of Word 2003! Excellent!
