    I followed exactly your steps, but the files not showing up in local group policy editor. Nothing happened.

    I copied office16.admx and outlk16.admx files to '%systemroot%policyDefinitions'
    I copied office16.adml and outlk16.adml files to '%systemroot%policyDefinitionsen-us'
    Open gpedit.msc, under Administrative templates, there are no office and outlook folder there.
