    This TCMD Option here ...

    TCMD_FE-StartDIR.JPG TCMD_FE-StartDIR_HLP.JPG

    ... has no influence.

    The Start Directory for File Explorer is ALWAYS "Dieser PC" ("This PC" or something like that in english).

    What is here the problem?

    PS: TC 19.0.27 x64 on Win 10 Pro x64

    It's the same here. And when that is showing, the text in the location box (just below "File Explorer") is
    Code:
    ::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}
    ... not very friendly.

    You can get a computer name (in my case, "ZZ") by looking at the default value in
    Code:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}
    Maybe there's an API function to get a more reasonable string than the CLSID itself.

    Yes, indeed :-)

    BTW: If NO path is set, it takes the Path from Shortcut. OMG we are in similar theme again :-))
