Windows 10: Saving to D instead of OS

    Saving to D instead of OS

    I just got a new laptop and this is my first time using Windows 10. The guy told me to make sure not to fill my OS and to set my D drive as the default, or something. I went into System storage settings and set all the defaults to Data (D:) But it seems like everything I save still goes to the C drive. My D drive has nothing saved in it at all while my C drive is filling up.

    If someone could help me get this situated I'd very much appreciate that.
