"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

the question is not clear to me, maybe could you rephrase more precisely.
You cannot access a drive with what you call the bar windows...
And I wonder where you took your 2nd scrrenshot? from properties of a shortcut I guess..
But I think what you are looking for could be achieved with group policies.

now its ok ?

Mr TorturSystem EngineerCommented:
yes, so my guess was right.

But again, just suggesting, look at GPO (group policy object).
Did you already try? For example a google search for "gpo disable open file location" has many many good results so I am not sure this is requiring an expert additional comment. But I am not radical, maybe you could give it a try by yourself and ask again if you don't find.
