    Install on another drive other than C?


    So i have the latest windows 10 version, but i cannot seem to install apps to any where except the C drive. And the option to change is disabled. See image attached.

    Why is it disabled? How do I get it to work ?

    I am on windows 10 pro if that matters.

    What build/version of 10 are you on? Run WINVER from cmd line or Cortana. I am on 10586.29 and all is fine, not greyed out. In the link davidhk gave you, there is a comment stating MS was withholding that option for a while. I just wonder if you are on an old build/version.

    Click image for larger version.

    You are right. The Move option is not doing anything.

    By the way, I am on 10586.29 and I don't get what you showed in your screenshot.
    I clicked on the This PC and not drop down box appeared.

    You can. Windows 10 ISO Download - Page 19 - Windows 10 Forums

    This probably a better tutorial... Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade - Windows 10 Forums[2]=Installation%20and%20Setup

    Thanks i'll look into it. Seems a hassle, hope i don't lose my software on my C drive. Is it likely a bug that my OS is not updating it's build?
