    Customize Office 2000 File Open Dialog??

    I know that I've read how to modify the left hand frame of the Office 2000 file open dialog box, but I don't remeber where I read it. I would like to change the default folders in the left hand pane of the dialog box. Anyone know where to look???

    Tools/Options General Tab. Is the "Default file location:" what you are looking for?

    Edited 01/03/09 by KB MacKenzie to add URL tags.
    I just stumbled on a method to do some of these changes without using regedit. This might be good for people who are reluctant to edit the registry. XSetup is a FREE TweakUI type of program with many more features than TweakUI. It is available at <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.xteq.com/>http://www.xteq.com/</A>.

    It looks like XSetup will add 3 User Places and allow you to disable any or all of the default user places.

    XTEQ was recommended by Ian in the Software Finds Forum. If you want more info on it, check out this post.

    Hi Legare:

    You mean File Locations tab, not General, don't you?
