    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.

    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.
