    Office 2010 default save location

    Hello,

    I have a problem with office 2010 with our student account. when students click save or save as they get an error saying this task has been disabled buy an administrator. after looking into it a bit more i have found the default save location for all of the office applications is on C:\ where my students don't have access. so this needs to be changed to there my documents

    i have done some gogleing and found the .adm templates for office 2010 but i can only find the place to set the default save location for word, we need to set this for all the office applications.

    thanks for any advice.

    Is this something for a GPO and preferences perhaps?

    I think that the strange thing here is that it is set to c:\ in the first place as it should by default point to the users documents area. I think that there may be some other setting somewhere that has messed with this to result in this issue. Do you have your documents folders mapped anywhere that it may be misinterpreting.

    There must be something in the ADM/ADMX templates for Office 2010 - can download them from the Microsoft website (at least you could with 2007).

    I have the AMD files (there on the 2010 CD) i have only found the option to change the save location of power point. the option is only under power point and nothing else :S

    Did you find a solution to this, we're getting the same thing.

    Users My Docs are redirected to their home drive which is a UNC Path, but if they try to save a document (for example an attachment from Outlook 2010) they get a message:

    Restrictions: The operation has been cancelled due to restricts in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator.

    You press ok, then it just goes to the redirected location anyway and you can then save it.

    Most annoying.

    Hi Pete,

    We did find what it was. users need read permissions down then entire folder path

    for example
    \\server\student\year group\%username%

    If the student only has read wright access to the %username% folder we received the error

    If we add the students group to the student + year group folders to give read only access and have read wright access to the %user name% folder it was not stroppy and dident throw an error

    hope I make sense
