"Desktop directory" only opens up on the C: drive

Windows have a cool feature that allows you to move your desktop/documents(and other) folders to other locations. And I often use them as my project folders. Thus they easily grow too large for an SSD with windows on it.

It would be really nice if PhpStorm and other jetbrains programs actually opened up the desktop folder when pressing the "desktop directory" button, not the location it thinks the desktop should be.

An interesting moment though. I have tried to change the location of my user profile desktop directory location and now "Desktop" button is greyed out in PhpStorm file browser. Do you have the same behaviour or it is pointing to the "default" location in your scenario?
