    I copied and pasted this code into a .txt file and saved it as a .adm file. When importing to my administrative templates it's blank. I'm using Windows XP when working the Group Policy Management application. I also tried on my Windows 2003 server. Do I need a 2008 server to be able to see this .adm?!

    The ADM file needs to go on your Domain Controller, then when you're within a GPO you should be able to import it from there.

    This works on 2003, and I don't see why it won't work when using XP and Group Policy Management to modify your Group Policy.

    I got it to work. I had to install Remote Server Administration Tools and added the correct features I was able to then see the contents of the custom .adm.

    thanks!

    This is a brilliant step in the right direction. On server 2008 and windows 7 here it has successfully got rid of the link to the libraries. However, the default path in the save as path bar is still libraries\documents and when clicking the down arrow to display the usual there is nothing else there. Has anyone got round this? Has anyone also been able to deploy a default save and open path too? For example to a mapped drive, G: in our case.

    Thanks for this great info for preventing libraries. I am using the way of 'Enable Disable Known Folders and adding the values but the only one I can't seem to get rid of is the Music Library?

    {2112AB0A-C86A-4ffe-A368-0DE96E47012E} - Music Library

    I've tried putting it at the top and bottom of the list to new avail.

    Anyone got any ideas why this one is still being displayed?

    Thanks very much.

    Gary

    This is great however our students were saving work/games in their local desktop/Documents in the Users profile. So i hide the link to the users profile. But know if you right click in the navigation pane you get the option to show all folders and it reappears AAAArgghhh!

    Here you go:
    How to Remove “Network” from Windows 7 Explorer’s Navigation Pane? - Tweaking with Vishal

    It's my plan to do this and the other "hides" on our default build....

    What I cannot work out is if students open WORD and try to save a document it does nt default to their H:\ drive
    but the damn libraries -> documents grrrr

    Hi,

    Cheers, done that now, network icon gone.

    Is it possible to use the libraries and redirect them to the user area?

    We don't have the option to right click in the nav pane...not sure if locking this down will help (although can't remember what setting I used....sorry!

    Is the ADM in this thread still good to use or has anything changed?
