Do not add shares of recently opened documents to Network Locations

Remote shared folders are not added to Network Locations whenever you open a document in the shared folder.

If you disable this setting or do not configure it, when you open a document in a remote shared folder, the system adds a connection to the shared folder to Network Locations.

If you enable this setting, shared folders are not added to Network Locations automatically when you open a document in the shared folder.
