How do I get a program, such as MSPaint to open to a default My Pictures folder.

Are you talking about having MSPaint to open a whole folder or open 1 picture?

What I'd like is when I run paint, and click open, for it to open in My Pictures folder so I can choose which pic.

When I click open now, it opens in My Documents folder.

When I click open now, it opens in My Documents folder.
After I have opened a picture from My Pictures folders, MS Paint goes to that folder every time after that (or the last folder used, if you like).

I'm on Windows 10 64bit.
