Default "My Places" Office 2003 - Edit by Group Policy?

I understand that it is possible to edit which icons appear in open/save as
dialogs (My Places) in a networked environment by use of group policies. I
have installed and activated the relevant administrative templates on the
server (Windows 2003), but cannot find this setting in any of them
(office11.adm, word11.adm, excel11.adm, outlk11.adm). Any help will be very
much apreciated.

Thanks

Robert

Hi Robert,

The Office 2003 'My places' bar settings are stored in
a registry key.
http://support.microsoft.com/default...us;826214&FR=1
You can deploy the registry key as
part of a Custom installation setup of Office
http://microsoft.com/office/ork/2003

I don't recall that those settings are part of the
default .ADM text files, but you may want to check
the Excel spreadsheet that accompanies the current
Office 2003 .adm files at
