Microsoft Store. How to change the apps storage location?

Hello, where does Windows Store saves the apps I've downloaded from it? I'm assuming that it saves apps in the same drive where the OS is installed. I would like to know exactly where Windows Store is saving the apps and how to modify, if possible, the save path directory. I have two drives and I'm trying to save all in a specific drive (the one used for storage only, not OS drive).

Hi,

You may change the apps storage location on the drive that you prefer by following the steps.

1. Type storage in the search bar and click on it.

2. under save locations> you may change where new apps will save to the preferred drive.

Hope this helps. Get back to us for further queries. We are happy to help!

Thanks & Regards
Joy

Hello, thanks for the reply.

I tried to do what you suggested me but i found that the drop list where the drive for saving apps is selected, cannot be modified. I attached a picture with this message for you to see this. 

Again, thanks for the help provided. Have a great day.
