    I defineded Win+E = Computer
    When I do Shift + Click on WE taskbar button = Libraries

    So what is the problem?
    And why are you Shift+Clicking the taskbar?

    Shift+Clicking a taskbar button behaves like a clicking by middle mouse button (same problem) => Opening a new window.
    In Windows Explorer it is expected to open a new window in the same path (= Ctrl+N), or equal to Win+E.

    The pinned thing on the taskbar is a shortcut. Edit its properties and make it open whatever you want. I don't see how this is a Classic Shell bug.

    Thank You. You right. I was wrong (Start menu settings > context menu > default explorer path).
    But I still have a question:
    Is there a way to set the target to get the Same location (like in opening new window by Ctrl+N)?

    I still don't understand what you are asking. You are mixing 2 separate things - the initial path when you use the start button, and the initial path when you use the pinned icon on the taskbar.

    And what do you mean by "Same location"? Same as what?

    Please next time read your post and think if there are enough details so a person that doesn't read your mind can understand what you are saying.

    I'm sorry.
    I said My mistake was about "the initial path when you use the start button".
    and I had never mentioned pinned Icon.
    Forget about it.

    Maybe now I would be understood:
    If I open a folder, and I want a new window with the same path/location, I do Ctrl+N.
    But, If I Shift+clicking (or middle click) on its taskbar button, so a new window of Windows Explorer would be open (path = Libraries).
    I want that when I Shift+clicking (or middle click) on a folder taskbar button, a new window with the same path would be open, as if I did Ctrl+N.
