Save Dialog Customization

    Save Dialog Customization - Removing quick links on the sidebar.


    I am providing an application to users via Remote App. This is being delivered from Windows 2016 Server. I know this is a win10 forums however I have been using the windows 10 forums to find registry hacks and have found lots of useful information to lock down file explorer so users cannot access things such as "Quick Access" "desktop" "Network" "pictures" "documents" etc...

    I have found a need however to remove specific items from the save dialog box via the registry.

    When a user saves from this particular third party program it pulls up a windows save dialog box. I have attached an image. The options i want to remove from the left hand side bar are "Quick Access" "Desktop" and "Network"

    Apologies if this is posted in the wrong section, or there is a lack of information this is my first post. Please advise and I can provide more.

    I am happy to help others with what knowledge I have also.

    Thanks for your time.

    Hi, assuming you find a way to do that, note that 'Save as' dialogues are not standardised or uniform. Thus the places that appear there can be particular to a particular program.

    I.e. there may not be one solution to this.

    However, see
