Remove "Libraries" from SaveAs/Open Dialog Box in Server 2008 R2 via Group Policy?
Posted on 2010-11-17
We have a school with a 2008 R2 server and Windows 7 workstations. When students go to save a document, they tend to click on the "documents" under the libraries section. This ends up saving the document to the local machine. Many of the student computers have deep freeze on them so as soon as they reboot, their work is gone. I've tried searching Google for registry keys and other hacks to remove this. The only thing I have had any success with is removing/hiding libraries from Windows Explorer. The problem though is it doesn't remove it completely from the Save As/ Open menu. I need some way to either hide it from the Save As window or redirect it to their personal "Z" network drives. Can anyone help with this?
