Specify Trusted Locations Dialog Box

How do I get to this dialog box?
  1. Open Workspace Settings.

    The steps depend on your user interface mode.

    User Interface Mode Steps
    Ribbon On the the File menu or the Reflection button (if using the Office 2007 Look and Feel), choose Reflection Workspace Settings.
    Reflection Browser On the Reflection menu, choose Settings and then Reflection Workspace Settings.
    TouchUx Tap the Gear icon and then select Reflection Workspace Settings.
  2. Under Trust Center, select Specify Trusted Locations.

A trusted location is a directory that's designated as a secure source for opening files. By default, Reflection allows you to open documents only in directories specified as trusted locations in the Reflection settings.

During installation, Reflection specifies four default trusted locations on your local hard drive. The paths for three of these trusted locations cannot be modified or deleted. However, you can remove the trusted location for the user desktop ( ...users\<user>\Desktop). You can also add your own trusted locations to the list.
