    Change default download/install, etc, location to HDD rather than SSD

    I want basically everything to go to my 1TB HDD (D by default, but hardly anything does. My SSD (C is now at 18.6GB. Is it possible to make the D: drive my "main drive" while not moving all the MS/Windows files there too and messing everything up?

    The computer in use is an MSI GT72 2PC laptop, upgraded from Windows 8 to 10.

    Thanks in advance for you help.
