Hi Mike,

Download a proggy called "Tweak UI" it will allow you to change the items in
the favs pane on save/open dialogues.

Michael,

If you're referring to the "Places Bar" pane which appears in the Open / Save As dialog boxes, read below:

Using TweakUI is the easiest method to add/remove places in the Open/Save As dialog. Download TweakUI from here:

TweakUI v2.10 for XP SP1 and above
http://download.microsoft.com/download/f/c/a/fca6767b-9...

TweakUI v2.00 for XP
http://download.microsoft.com/download/whistler/Install...

You can also accomplish this using Group Policy editor in Windows XP Professional

Type GPEDIT.MSC in the RUN box. Navigate to:
User Configuration | Administrative Templates | Windows Components | Windows Explorer | Common Open File Dialog
Double-click Items displayed in Places Bar and add the places in the text boxes
[See Explain tab for more information]

Thank you to all. I check this out but can't find the key/option to switch

Type GPEDIT.MSC in the RUN box. Navigate to:
User Configuration | Administrative Templates | Windows Components | Windows Explorer | Common Open File Dialog
Double-click Items displayed in Places Bar and add the places in the text boxes
[See Explain tab for more information]

That was it! But it seems that MS WORD got his own rules ...

Thank you for showing me the way!
