Windows 10 applications are normally downloaded and installed in the default system directory on the Windows PC. Many devices such as phones and tablets have limited storage space. Therefore, it becomes extremely necessary to change the default installation directory location of applications on your Windows 10 device. As numerous Windows 10 applications are downloaded frequently to your PC, this tip will help you to change the default installation folder of Windows 10 apps to a different unit that has much more room to accumulate them. Some devices are also configured disproportionately to make the system unit much smaller than other units. It's a lifesaver in Windows 10, as Microsoft has provided the flexibility to change the default installation folder location on the device.



Note - This method does not move pre-installed applications to the changed folder. Only applications downloaded after changing the default installation folder will be installed in the changed directory.
