... 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 :-))
