2.8 Windows default export directory
Hello,

in 2.6 Gimp used to save to my windows Pictures directory. Now in 2.8 the default export directory is Documents, which I find a bit annoying. Can I change this behaviour?

Thanks, Jamie

I just got around to trying that but it didn't work. Gimp still tries to export to my Documents folder. In fact, it wasn't even the case to start with, the Start In folder being %USERPROFILE%, while Gimp tries to export to %USERPROFILE%\Documents.
