This should do it (below). Save it as an ADM and load it into your GPO.
Make
you sure enable the View, Filtering option to show unmanaged settings.



Class USER
CATEGORY "Custom IE Setting"
  KEYNAME "Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer"
  POLICY "Set Download Location"
        PART "Enter Path: " EDITTEXT
        VALUENAME "Download Directory"
       END PART
  END POLICY
END CATEGORY

No problem in creating a custom ADM but not sure how.

Jim-
You could create a custom ADM for this, or are you trying to avoid that?

Subject: [gptalk] I.E. Download to local folder only

Hi all,

I have been able to set our users' downloads in Firefox to a local
folder
using their .adm in group policy, but I have not been able to find a
similar
setting in I.E. 7.0. we want to allow for downloads but not to have the
downloads be synchronized to the server later. The only solution I have
found is to edit the registry on the local machine but this is not
acceptable for group changes.

1. Start Regedit and navigate to:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer 
2. Change the value of the string Download Directory to the new path you
want to assign as IE's Default Download directory (i.e. "C:\Local" has
been
assigned as my new download folder).




Blessings,
Jim
