As we all know that the default directory for installing applications is the C:Program Files folder in Windows OS. What if I am running out of disk space and I want to change the default Installation directory? I am writing a simple tutorial which will help you to change the defaultprogram installation path to point to a folder on the drive or partition that has the free space.
Follow the Simple Steps :
- Go to Start > Run
- Type Regedit and then click Ok
- Scroll to the key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE> SOFTWARE> Microsoft> Windows> CurrentVersion
- On the right window, double click on the key ProgramFilesDir.
- In the Edit String dialog box . change the path in the Value data: field to the new default install location, and click OK .
