Windows 7: Customize Windows dialog box (Save as)

Customize Windows dialog box (Save as)

Hello people,

Currently, I am setting up a kiosk-pc so that people can save certain documents to a networklocation. However, once you get the 'Save as' dialog box you can browse through the network which I don't want to happen.
(See the attached image).



Is there a way that the address bar (look in, highlighted red) will be removed or without any locations in it? (GPO or Regedit)

Thanks in advance.

Hello A Guy,

Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately that's not what I meant. I would like to disable/remove the 'Save In' or 'Look in' rule in the dialog box.

Greetings

I understood, but was hoping that would suffice. Disabling the address bar may not be possible. I see where disabling Run has the effect of not allowing typing in the address bar. Some reading for you.
