Change the Default Shortcuts in the Save As Dialog Box (For Advance User Only)

By default Windows XP puts 5 shortcuts in the Save As dialog box. They are: My Recent Documents, Desktop, My Documents, My Computer, and My Network Places. Have you ever wanted to add your own? Here's how.

1. Start -> Run -> regedt32
2. Navigate to: \HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies
3. Create a new key named comdlg32 (unless one already exists with that name)
4. Create another key under comdlg32 named Placesbar
5. Create 5 new string values under Placesbar named: Place0, Place1, Place2, Place3, and Place4
6. Set each string value to the full path (or environmental variable) of the folder you want to appear (IE: "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\Business Forms")
7. Exit the registry editor
8. To see your results, go to any application, and choose File -> Save As
9. If you ever want to remove this feature, just re-edit the registry and remove the Placesbar key (and all of it's contents) that you created above
