Common dialog box and places bar in Windows 7 like XP?
Running Win 7 Pro on domain with Server 2008r2 and I am trying to find a GP to make the navigation pane that appears in all of the common dialog boxes in Win 7 (save as, open, browse...) look like they did in Windows XP with the use of the Places bar. I have circled in red on the attached screenshot what I am referring to. I don't want the users to see the standard Win 7 nav pane with the tree listing of Favorites, Libraries, Computer, etc.
I have search and searched for a solution for this but can't seem to find one. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Many of our users are quite computer illiterate/apathetic and we are trying to get them to save their documents to their network shares. In XP I've reconfigured the "Places bar" so the network share shortcut is listed in there and I'd like to somehow do the same with Win 7 if possible.
Does anyone know of any way to do it other than via Group Policy? GP would be ideal but I would certainly consider another method.
