Change the default location for installing apps / Windows XP

As the size of hardrives increase, more people are using partitions to seperate and store groups of files.


Windows XP uses the C:Program Files directory as the default base directory into which new programs are installed. However, you can change the default installation drive and/ or directory by using a Registry hack.

Run the Registry Editor (regedit) and go to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersion
