If it is not possible to hide or remove the " 2 locations link ". Is there a way to stop users from adding or removing the default save location ?

There is a way to fully disable the libraries, guess that not what you wanted it to be. Since you don't want other users to mess with your setting.

I think there isn't a way to hide or remove the "2 location link" without hacking into the system file.

Here is a temporary way to hide the Library pane.

Library Pane - Turn On or Off

When you open documents go to the menu bar under Organize dropdown / Layout / uncheck Library Pane.
Hope others users don't turn it on and start messing your setting.

Thank You

Thank you so much Bulldog7....i used the Registry setting for turning off the Library pane, worked a treat. Although it is only for HKEY CURRENT USER, I applied it to all users that log on using the GPO Preferences.
