How to change default download directory?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok, so I use my primary drive (my 64gb SSD) for Windows and most small sized programs and use my Samsung F3 for everything else. Thing is, anything I download and install defaults to the SSD's Program Files directory and sometimes I forget to change the location and end up installing something big on my SSD. Is there anyway where I can default all install locations to my Samsung F3's drive?

It's always usually down through your browser options, whichever browser that may be.

Ok, but I'm not talking about stuff I download off the internet like installers and such. I'm talking about when I'm actually installing a program, I want to change the install location to my other hard drive.

It will always usually try to default to c>program files etc...

You just need to click "change" when the installer prompts you and choose the directory you want to save it to.
