Apply Restricted Browsing to File Open dialog box RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, 

    I'm using the GPO "Restricted Browsing" to specify where can users save a file and I'd like to do the same for the File Open dialog box.

    My enviroment is:
    Windows Server 2008 R2 RDS (most specifically RD Session Host)
    Office  Professional Plus 2013
    User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Microsoft Office 2013\File Open/Save dialog box\Restricted Browsing\
    Activate Restricted Browsing - Enable for all
    Approve Locations - three mapped folders

    When I try to save a document I only see the three folder in the Save As dialog box, so it's correct.

    It's possible to do the same for the File Open dialog box?

    I've found something close in another post related to Office 2007:

    "In order to prevent users from accessing anything under the favorites section of the File > Opendialog window inside of office 2007 I created the following key. This does not get rid of "Favorites" it just removes access to anything under it. This was as close as I could get even after opening a premier support ticket with microsoft and working with a top level engineer for days.



    Ok and this one works for libraries...


    And this for Network



    But if "Restricted Browsing" can be applied to Save As dialog box, why not to File Open?

    Thanks in advance.
