Windows Explorer in Windows 2012 RDS environment.

We have a Windows 2012 RDS environment. We do not want our users to see the desktop, documents, downloads, music, pictures and videos folders when they launch the published apps and click FILE>OPEN.

We follow this link http://carlwebster.com/removing-desktop-documents-downloads-music-pictures-and-videos-folders-from-navigation-pane/ and remove the below folders in
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace


Desktop Folder – {B4BFCC3A-DB2C-424C-B029-7FE99A87C641}
Documents Folder – {A8CDFF1C-4878-43be-B5FD-F8091C1C60D0}
Downloads Folder – {374DE290-123F-4565-9164-39C4925E467B}
Music Folder – {1CF1260C-4DD0-4ebb-811F-33C572699FDE}
Pictures Folder – {3ADD1653-EB32-4cb0-BBD7-DFA0ABB5ACCA}
Videos Folder – {A0953C92-50DC-43bf-BE83-3742FED03C9C}

From the application's FILE>OPEN of the users, we are still seeing DESKTOP, DOWNLOADS, Recent places under "FAVORITES".  Anyone knows how to hide this too?

We do not see the above folders under "This PC" which is good.  

Thanks.

That's the Favorites menu in Windows Explorer. http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/windows-and-office/remove-favorites-from-windows-explorer-in-windows-7/ has a guide on removing it.

To remove the user folders from the save / open. Delete the same GUIDs from the following subkey:
("Wow6432Node")
