Note that Kill does not put the file in the Recycle Bin. To
delete a file to the Recycle Bin, see

I am playing around with OWA in 2007 and exploring the "documents" feature of
OWA that allows users to view Windows file shares by UNC.
There is the individual "add to favories" option, but does anyone know of a
way to administratively specify a favorite for all users? The alternative
seems to be logon as each user to setup the same favorite--surely that is not
the only way?
