How to Change Default Download Storage Location for Movies & TV in Windows 10

information   Information
The Movies & TV app is included with Windows 10, and let's you have all your movies and TV shows, all in one place, on all your devices.

Movies & TV brings you the latest entertainment in one app on Windows. On your PC and Windows Mobile, the app lets you play and manage videos from your personal collection. On all your devices, you can use the app to browse and play movies and TV shows you’ve purchased from the Store.

When you sign in to the Movies & TV app and purchase content from the Store, the device you signed in from will be automatically added as one of your download devices.

You can download purchased content to up to five devices and redownload the content as many times as you like. Rentals can only be played on the device on which they were purchased. If you have reached the limit of five devices, you’ll need to remove one of the devices before you will be able to download on another device.

The default download location for your purchased movies and TV shows is your %UserProfile\Videos folder.

This tutorial will show you how to change the storage location of where new Movies & TV content is downloaded by default for your account in Windows 10.

If you change the default download storage location for new Movies & TV content, it will not move any existing content to the new location.
