    Removing Functions From Win 7 Via Group Policy

    Afternoon everyone!

    I'm trying to remove the 'Includes 'x' Locations' from users Documents. The Default save location is correct, this feature allows users to add other locations to save. We obviously don't want this as students could have a field day adding god knows where if a teacher leaves a machine unlocked.

    If you take a look at the below image you will hopefully see what I'm getting at + hoping to remove/disable... I've spent some time trying to find a GPO to do so, I can't and don't want to waste too much time. I'm hoping someone here can enlighten me or has done what I'm attempting to do and could advise?!

    We are testing and trying to get everything ready for the switch to Win 7 this summer. This is now one of those things that hasn't gone so smoothly...

    Please assist!!

    Thanks

    From what I can remember when migrating here is that Documents is a library feature. We disable libraries here and everybody uses their mapped network drive as their save location.

    Thanks for the response,

    We use mapped drives now. The staff can get to that screen by just going into "Documents" and clicking 'Includes 'x' Locations'. We are trying to remove that feature so they can't click 'Includes 'x' Locations' and add other places.

    Hope that makes sense?

    Thanks again

    Sorry, I was unclear in what I was saying. Do you need the library feature? If not, disable it and the locations cannot be changed.

    Did you disable the libraries? If so how did you do it?

    Why thank you SYNACK!! I knew I'd seen a collection of guides posted by ZeroHour on here somewhere!! + fairm010 I will have sorted it after using that link SYNACK posted above.

    Thank you both for the responses.

    Thanks again.
