I have a number of users using Windows 7 PCs with Outlook 2010.  We are running  Exchange 2013 for email.  

We have two shared folders SharedFolder1 and SharedFolder2.

I can make these Shared Folders show up as favorites in the Mail tab by right clicking on the shared folder and clicking Add to Favorites then going to Favorites under Public Folders and clicking Show in Favorites.

My user base, however, has minimal computer skills.  

Is there any way to automatically make SharedFolder1 and SharedFolder2 show up as favorites in the Mail tab of Outlook on any computer they sign in without the user having to perform any steps?  Any settings in Exchange, Outlook or maybe Group Policy?

Unfortunately, no.  Group policy nor any other app I am aware of will customize those settings within Outlook.
