Microsoft Office 2019 Offline Mode

You are tired of waiting some hours at Word startup?
Word likes calling home at every startup asking mommy for templates, in some environments that’s is forbidden. In result you have to wait for the final timeout and thats really BORING. Switching off the start screen doesn’t help (for word).
At this point i should remark, that powerpint behaves slightly better and excel works fine and reacts immediately. Seems there are different development teams with different philosophies at work. :)

But anyway, here is the solution:
Inject the followinh key into your registry (maybe via GPO):

HKCU -> Software -> Policies -> Microsoft -> Office -> 1x.0 -> Common -> Internet -> UseOnlineContent (Type: REG_DWORD Value: 0)

HKCU -> Software -> Microsoft -> Office -> 1x.0 -> Common -> Internet -> UseOnlineContent (Type: REG_DWORD Value: 0)
