Default save location set to desktop?
For some reason all our windows 7 laptops and PCs are set to desktop as the default save location. It only affects students and not staff or admins.
I'm sure its group policy related, but any hint about where to look would be useful...
My initial investigation shows that when a student tries to save it comes up with desktop. They just click save. It then says you can't save here would you like to save in My documents instead. they click yes and then it says this action has been canceled due to restrictions on this device. If they save to computer h:\ it works fine, but of course they don't do this, and end up losing their file by clicking close, don't save.
If they click their name in the start menu they get a list of all the folders (documents, desktop, music etc) but most of them either fail with access denied or the restriction message.
I think it might be because I tried to disable the horrid 'libraries' feature. I've managed to hide the libraries documents, videos etc within 'libraries' but not the link on the places bar. I'm going to try removing the guid filter to see if thats to blame tomorrow.
Redirection of documents, music and videos is in place in the group policy file. under 'folder redirection'. Is there somewhere else I need to check or do you think its the disabling of the libraries thats to blame?
