    Windows store Cant change default location


    Im trying to download games from the Windows Store/Xbox App but cant install them onto my games hard drive because its not listed in the drop down menu or any other menu choices in the storage settings. The drive works and is listed in "This PC" and in Disk Management.
    I have an SSD installed specifically for games and want to install the games onto it. Here is a screenshot with the games drive (G) not listed.

    Right articles. You make the change in Settings. Another article that states the same as the other two. If you edit the registry to make the change, you risk messing up windows. Also take this at a very high risk. https://gallery.technet.microsoft.co...-apps-465af642

    You're getting bit closer to what im actually asking but that article hasnt been updated in 4 years and who knows when it was first published. Its for a different version of windows too. Its ok, im gonna call microsoft support, or maybe try the online chat thing first and see.

    MS support will give you a canned answer. Have you even gone through the steps posted?
