Default Save As location for applications other than Office...
Updating the ADMx files on the server allowed me to crack the issue of Office 2010 not defaulting to the users H:\ drive for saving -
What about all other apps - even something as simple as notepad...
It defaults to : Libraries -> Documents
I tried this but it did nt seem to work...
To change default system “save in” location.
•In group policy go to User Configuration \Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Explorer
\Common Open File Dialog
•Click on “Items displayed in Places Bar”
•Add your Save Location. for example \\servername\sharename ( It can be mounted I:\ folder)
I did put H:\ - will try tomorrow with \\servername\sharename
presumably I can put \\servername\%username%$

That's really helpful Kenny! Been meaning to look into this for my network for a long time but other things have taken precedence. I knew about the Office 2010 ADM templates could resolve that issue but i did not know where to start with the hundreds of other different pieces of software!

I've been looking at this aswell, just set H:\ and when clicking File\Open or Save As in worpad/notepad it seems to work ok.

I tried this today and obviously didn't do it right! Where do you add your 'save location' I had 5 options and couldn't work out what to do?
