Hide Libraries and Network in Microsoft Office (x86) AND Windows Explorer (x64)


We had hidden the Libraries and Network links in the explorer bar on our Citrix XenAPp 6.5 servers, but for some reason they continued to appear inside Office and some other applications.

Turns out the common element was 32bit apps were all still able to see libraries and Network locations etc particularly when saving files in Word or excel.

There are two registry locations for libraries and network etc, 64bit and 32bit, edit them all as follows, be sure to assign permission to these keys as administrator first!

64bit Favorites key is:
Attributes: a9400100

Attributes:b090010d (hide)
Attributes:b080010d (default – show)

64bit Network key is:
Attributes: B0940064
