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).
