Default how to customize File...Open diaglog box

How do I change the settings in the File..Open dialog box so that I can set
what locations I want to display be default? I would like to do the same
thing with the save dialog box so that the same locations are displayed? Is
this a registry tweak and where do I find it, or is there some add-on I can
use to do this? thanks

Go to Tools Options File Locations and change the "Documents" setting to
the folder you want to be the default location.

Default how to customize File...Open diaglog box

Thanks for your replay. However, I am not looking to set a "default"
location. I am looking to change the default list that is displayed in the
window pane to the left in the File...Open or save.. dialog box. the defaults
are "My recent documents" , "desktop", "my documents", "my computer" and "my
network places". that is the list I want to modify. I used to have a reghack
for it with office 97 but I no longer have it.

There was no Places Bar in Office 97. See
