Default Path in Explorer

I am currently having troubles with a Micrsoft 2008 Terminal Server where there's a citrix Application shared.

In the citrix application itself (doesn't matter what application) you can browse your computer for eg. if you're trying to save or get a file.

Now when you click on that icon to browse your computer it starts at C:\users\%username% (eg. "c:\users\testuser\")

The problem is that our policy doesn't allow anything to be saved directly in that profile, so the user gets an error message saying that he's not allowed to use that folder. Is it possible to change that default location where any "explorer" first goes from the profile directory to anywhere else?

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

first and second one doesn't really work, because it's only working for shortcuts.... 3td commend is just for office / msft products.

We need this for to be set by a policy for all users on the terminal server. Any application, where the path is not set, shall use a specific folder and not the 2008 Server default C:\users\%username%

To change default system save in location.

In group policy go to User Configuration \Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Explorer
\Common Open File Dialog
Click on Items displayed in Places Bar 
Add your Save Location. for example \\servername\sharename ( It can be mounted I:\ folder)

this will be an item to the placed bar, but won't change the very first directory that is trying to be accessed (initial directory)...
