Summary0030178: Preferences: Changing your "My Projects" directory value requires you to restart GMS2 to have any effect
DescriptionWithin Preferences > General > Paths, changing your "My Projects" directory isn't actually applied by Apply alone - you must restart GMS2 to see any change when using an Open dialogue.

Expected: As soon as I click Apply, any Explorer windows I then open know about the current value of the path, not the one which was in effect when the IDE started.

Steps To Reproduce1. Start GMS2.
2. File > Preferences > General > Paths
3. Change your "My Projects" directory path to some other folder. Apply and OK.
4. Back on the Start Page, click the Open button.
5. Observe the Explorer window opens to your previous My Projects directory.
