Do you have auto save enabled? I think if that is enabled it defaults to the onedrive space is that what you are experiencing?
What a I am wanting is to go to file open and it go directly to the L drive.
I can open files on L by browsing to the location.
Auto Save is on and is not defaulting to one drive space.
I have the option to trust network locations but not specifically L.
When i try to add L to trusted locations it gives me an error about security.
if you create a folder inside L: is that accepted as Trusted?
L is a drive on our file server. Not sure I understand creating a folder in L because we already have all folders created on Server we would not be adding a new folder.
It should be possible to use a GPO to provide a hybrid environment of local and network locations using the FQDN of the path to L: That's also detailed in the link.
This assumes that the reason you can't set your Excel default document location is because Office doesn't want to use it (of course it would be helpful if it told you when you tried to set it up!)
Can you please send documentation of how to set it up in group policy. I don't understand why it is not working because it works on other computers and Word configuration.
MASQ I create a folder inside L: it was not accepted as Trusted? Error the path you have entered cannot be as a Trusted location for security reasons . Choose another location
Yes and this option is ticked for both..
Is it showing the UNC?
I’m currently have no solution
Can you try removing the mapping completely on the affected machine and then remapping?
See this similar issue
You should be able to accept your last post as the "solution".
I do wonder if asking a slightly different question of them (about first making your mapped drive a Trusted Location) might get you closer to your goal.
We did try that as well as other solutions. They actually worked with me within the program for quite awhile.
