    Cannot Change Default App Download Location, Build 14393.187


    I'm currently trying to download Forza Horizon 3, but the only problem is that I only have ~25GB left on my SSD C: drive. When I go into the system settings and try to change the default save location for Apps, it will let me choose my E: drive, but as soon as I hit apply it just reverts to the C: drive. It let's me change the locations for all of the other options, but as soon as I try to change the locations for Apps it just resets all other save changes I've made.
    After a bit of searching for a fix to this I discovered that the Store will ask you where you want to download something if the download is large enough. This is perfect except every time I try to download Forza and choose my E: as the download location, the Store just crashes. No error codes or anything.
    Any help would be much appreciated.

    You could try resetting the Store:

    Nope. Still does the same thing. I change it to my E: drive and as soon as I hit apply it reverts back to my C: drive.

    Is there a way to reinstall Windows while keeping all of my apps? I know you can keep settings and all of my games are on my E: drive, but I have a lot of apps I would need to re-download.
