Computer & IT Tips By Akash Padhiyar

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 .
  • Enjoy
