Customizing the Office Common Dialog Boxes

When you display the Open or Save As dialog boxes in any Office application, the left side of the dialog box holds a strip of icons called My Places. There are five icons in the default configuration: My Recent Documents, Desktop, My Documents, My Computer, and My Network Places. Clicking any of these icons places the corresponding folder in the Look In (or Save In) list and displays the folder contents in the dialog box.

This is handy behavior, and it gets even handier when you customize the My Places bar to include the folders that you use most often. You can also change the order of the icons and remove icons, as explained in the next few sections.
