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.
