How to Specify Office 2016 trusted locations on a per-application basis by using Group Policy

Depending on which application you want to configure, navigate to one of the following locations in the Group Policy Object Editor tree:

User Configuration/Administrative Templates/Microsoft Office Access 2016/Application Settings/Security/Trust Center/Trusted Locations

User Configuration/Administrative Templates/Microsoft Office Excel 2016/Excel Options/Security/Trust Center/Trusted Locations

User Configuration/Administrative Templates/Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2016/PowerPoint Options/Security/Trust Center/Trusted Locations

User Configuration/Administrative Templates/Microsoft Office Visio 2016/Tools|Options/Security/Trust Center

User Configuration/Administrative Templates/Microsoft Office Word 2016/Word Options/Security/Trust Center/Trusted Locations

In the details pane, double-click a trusted location that has not been configured, such as Trusted Location #1, Trusted Location #2, and so on.

In the Trusted Location Properties dialog box, click Enabled and do the following:

In Path, type the path to the folder that you want to trust.
In Date, type today’s date.
In Description, type a description of the trusted location.
Select the Allow subfolders check box if you want all subfolders within the trusted folder to also be trusted

If you specify a network share as a trusted location, you must enable the Allow Trusted Locations on the network setting.
