Windows 10: How to save apps onto a separate hard drive

With the release of Windows 10 November Update, along came the ability to install apps on a different drive. No longer are you restricted from installing your apps on your default drive (in most cases, drive C).

If you enjoy downloading apps or games from the Windows Store, you may be concerned about storage space, especially on devices with limited disk space. Well, have no fear. Here’s what you need to do in order to install your apps on a different drive.

  • Open the Settings app and tap or click on System, then select Storage on the left side
  • Under “Save locations” look for “New apps will save to” and change “This PC (C:)” to any other drive

And you are done! You can also adjust where new documents, music, pictures, and videos are saved in this area of Settings.
