A lot of people that migrated to Office 2007 probably ran into the issue that the QAT (Quick Access Toolbar) is not included in the Roamind profile.

This caused a lot of frustration,  until a while ago the only solution was to have logon/logoff scripts that would copy the files over to a roaming location.
But Microsoft heard the complaints and they silently released an update to address this.
You are now able to move the QAT files to the roaming part of your profile through the following steps

  • Request the hotfix
    In most cases this update is already installed, so you probably don't need it.
  • Change the Registry, so that the hotfix will become active, use one of the following three solutions
    • Install the ADM or ADMX template which you can find at
    • If the System is not managed by policies you can change the following registry key for each user.
      • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Common\Toolbars
      • QuickAccessToolbarRoaming DWORD with a value of 1
    • In case that you are using policies you can change the following registry key, though i would advise you to use the ADM or ADMX instead.
      • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Common\Toolbars
      • QuickAccessToolbarRoaming DWORD with a value of 1
