|Add Custom Places to the Office Dialog Box (All Windows)|
Category: Home > Software > Microsoft Office
This tweak can be used to add your own custom Places to the Office 2000 and Office XP "Open" and "Save As" dialog boxes.
Open your registry and find the key below. For Office 2000 replace [version] with "9.0" in the registry key, or "10.0" for Office XP which is internally known as Office 10.
For each custom place create a new sub-key called "PlaceX" where X is a unique number starting at 1 (i.e. Place1, Place2 ...). Open the new sub-key and create two new string values called "Name" and "Path" and set them to equal the display name and folder path respectively.
Restart Office for the change to take effect.
