Hello Pajolool,

On items opened by explorer pinned to the taskbar, the open windows will default to being displayed from the "Explorer" taskbar icon that is the farthest to the left (taskbar on bottom) or closest to the top (taskbar on side). A work around for this would be to unlock the taskbar, drag your pinned pictures folder icon to the left of the pinned Explorer icon. However, all explorer windows will now default to the Pictures folder on the taskbar now.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
