      It depends on your version of Windows Don. In addition the Microsoft
      Office suite has its own version of the dialog and again it depends
      upon what version (year) of Office you have.

      If you're running Windows XP the easiest way to set up the common
      places shortcut buttons is to get TweakUI available free here:

      http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys.mspx

      Install the program, then run it and goto Common Dialogs/Places Bar to
      configure your shortcuts.

      The other dialog in Microsoft Office 2003 can be configured right from
      the normal file open dialog box. Just find the folder you want to
      add, then click on the TOOLS button in the dialog box.

      I'm still stumbling my way around Vista and Office 2007 to know how to
      do much in those venues yet.

        So from Sheri, John and Axel at least three ways to do it - with the
        Registry keys involved detailed in the
        http://windowsxp.mvps.org/PlacesBar.htm reference.

        FWIW - rather than using the clip commands to add/change/delete the
        registry keys directly, I'd tend to export using Regedt32 the section
        I'm interested in as a REG file and then invoke that from a single clip
        line.

        One other approach I've used occasionally once I've found what ever
        control panel, tweakUI fix or (now that Sheri reminded me gpedit.msc
        configure section) is to use either InstallRite (free) or Inctrl5
        (approx $8 from PCMag) to monitor the change I'm making and then turn
        that into REG file that can either be invoked from Windows Explorer or
        fired from Notetab clips.

        Both work approximately the same way - take a snapshot of Registry and
        Files, make your change, analyze what's changed with InstallRite or Inctrl5.

        From Inctrl5 you can directly create a REG file, from Inctrl5 you can
        take its change log and alter it the section you're interested in with
        Notetab to create a REG file.

              I did the same thing but opened all the INF files shown by bulk
              selecting them (except for a bunch of AER_nnnn items cause I didn't know
              what they are)

              On my system (WinXP SP3) these were:
              > C:\WINDOWS\inf\system.adm <-- this appears to be most important and
              > does control "Places Bar"
              > C:\WINDOWS\inf\windowsdefender.adm
              > C:\WINDOWS\inf\wmplayer.adm
              > C:\WINDOWS\inf\wuau.adm
              > C:\WINDOWS\inf\conf.adm
              > C:\WINDOWS\inf\inetcorp.adm
              > C:\WINDOWS\inf\inetres.adm
              > C:\WINDOWS\inf\inetset.adm
              > C:\WINDOWS\inf\Search.adm
              Some of these were already installed. Now I have a *much* longer list in
              Administrative Templates. (It appears that doing it in either Computer
              Configuration or User Configuration makes them available for the other.

              The specific policy to be changed is:
              User Configuration-Administrative Components-Windows Explorer-Common
              Open File Dialog
              [Items displayed in the Places Bar]

              When I checked Properties for that Policy it showed as not enabled even
              though I had previously established the contents of Places Bar using
              TweakUI referred to by others. I guess it makes its changes directly to
              the Registry.

                  Google: [missing items in group policy editor]

                  I did the same thing but opened all the INF files shown by bulk
                  selecting them (except for a bunch of AER_nnnn items cause I didn't know
                  what they are)

                  On my system (WinXP SP3) these were:
                  > C:\WINDOWS\inf\system.adm <-- this appears to be most important and
                  > does control "Places Bar"
                  > C:\WINDOWS\inf\windowsdefender.adm
                  > C:\WINDOWS\inf\wmplayer.adm
                  > C:\WINDOWS\inf\wuau.adm
                  > C:\WINDOWS\inf\conf.adm
                  > C:\WINDOWS\inf\inetcorp.adm
                  > C:\WINDOWS\inf\inetres.adm
                  > C:\WINDOWS\inf\inetset.adm
                  > C:\WINDOWS\inf\Search.adm
                  Some of these were already installed. Now I have a *much* longer list in
                  Administrative Templates. (It appears that doing it in either Computer
                  Configuration or User Configuration makes them available for the other.

                  The specific policy to be changed is:
                  User Configuration-Administrative Components-Windows Explorer-Common
                  Open File Dialog
                  [Items displayed in the Places Bar]

                  When I checked Properties for that Policy it showed as not enabled even
                  though I had previously established the contents of Places Bar using
                  TweakUI referred to by others. I guess it makes its changes directly to
                  the Registry.

                    Did you use the "gpedit.msc" Group Policy Editor method or the TweakUI
                    method?
                    I'm guessing you used "gpedit.msc". Not tested but I suspect that if you
                    supply one value any not specified get replaced by NULL. I suggest you
                    get TweakUI (half-way down right column
                    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/Downloads/powertoys/Xppowertoys.mspx )

                    It has five dropdowns that can be used to specify each location which
                    s/b on your Places Bar. (Go to Common Dialogs - Places Bar)

                    If you did enable and then fill in just one of those drop downs, you can fix it by just checking the Not Configured checkbox and everything should return to

                        gone.

                        I'm not sure who to link to "My Computer" so it opens up the entire list of
                        drives . it must be the explorer.scf or exe with switches <shrug>



                        I did find out that if you are in, for instance, Office, if you do File >
                        Save As, whatever location you choose in the drop down at the top, you can
                        then right click on the left nav and it will ask you if you want to add a
                        shortcut to that location. that's kinda cool.



                        I'm using Office 2007 if that makes a difference, I'd be interested to know.



                        Thanks Alec, Mick..
