    My Downloads folder is filling up my C drive...how do I move it?


    Folks,

    I don't want to move my Users folder. (Kari has an excellent tutorial on that. I did it on a previous system and that's not a solution for me.)

    My C drive is an SSD and my downloads are at 120GB. Sure, I can move things manually, but I'd rather have Win10 see and use the Downloads folder...in my D drive, not my C drive.

    How do I do that?

    Thanks,
    Ken

    Nice. I'm not sure that will work for what I intend, but it's a start...

    Thanks,

    in that link, scroll down to the bottom where you can use File Folder Properties to Move your folder to another drive.
    (ie) Right click your Downloads Folder, choose Properties,/Location/Move browse to the drive and folder you want to move it to.
