Remove Archive button from Outlook Ribbon


I am attempting to deploy Office 365 using the ODT and the OCT.  After deploying I noticed the "Archive" button is listed in the "Delete" group, on the ribbon.  I have turned off AutoArchive settings, when customizing the OCT, but the option to remove this button is not listed.


I have found the registry entry to remove the button and when I manually enter it, it works.  I have not been able to find a way to enter custom registry entries, in the OCT file, that will automatically enter the setting.  I attempted to edit the .xml file, but the button still shows.


How do I edit the OCT file to add custom registry options?


Thank you,

What's the registry path to remove the button?  I could find that useful. 




Hi, maybe this can also help: I disabled that Archive button via GPO.


How did you disable with GPO?

@JohnForth  With that GPO you can grey it out:

The ID for the archive button is 26308. See also my attachment in my answer

Just add this Registry to set disable
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
