Home » Select the Default Storage Location in Windows 10 Anniversary Update

The Windows 10 Anniversary Update is finally here and it comes with many new features and options. Today we will talk about how you can select the default storage locations on your computer that has just received the Windows 10 Anniversary Update.

Not many know, but it is very important to have the ability to have a secondary hard drive where you are able to store your important data in case you have a corrupted drive or any other hardware problems with your main hard drive.

If you are using a tablet that has less than 32GB of internal storage, a secondary storage will be very useful, as you will have more free space available in your main hard drive.

Accessing And Changing The Storage Settings

First of all, you will need to open the Windows Settings app and then select System->Storage. After that, you will need to select a default storage location for individual file types such as:

– Apps
– Documents
– Photos and Videos
– Movies and TV
– Music.

As expected, the default storage location for the mentioned file types is C:\, but you can change it to D:\, E:\ or in any other hard drive. After you made the changes, you just need to close the Windows Settings app and you’re done.

HINT: Keep in mind that the setting page will only display storage locations that can be used by these types of files. In other words, if you don’t see a hard drive among the options, then this means that it can’t be used as a default storage location.

What are your thoughts about the Windows 10 Anniversary Update and the new features and options that it comes with? Are you using the default storage location option to save files on a secondary hard drive?
