    Hmm, its being a pita. It seems you need to do more than drag and drop. Look below and see if this helps you

    How to change the Captures folder for Windows Game DVR
    In order to change the default location where your game clips and screenshots are saved on Windows 10, use the following steps:

    Open File Explorer.
    Click on This PC.
    Browse the following path:

    C:\Users\%username%\Videos

    Right-click the Captures folder and select Properties.


    Click the on the Location tab.
    Click the Move button.


    Browse to the new location to store your Captures folder.
    On the top-left corner, click the New folder button.
    Name the folder Captures and press Enter.
    Select the newly created folder, and click Select Folder.


    Quick Tip: Avoid selecting the root of a drive (for example, E:), as you will get an error message trying to restore your default settings in the future. In addition, using the default Game DVR settings, it's also possible to select a network share folder as the new location, if you have a network-attached storage (NAS) or a computer in your local network with more available storage. While this works over a Wi-Fi connection, you'll get better performance using an Ethernet (wired) network connection.
    Click Apply.
    Click Yes to confirm the move.


    Click OK.
    Using these instructions, you're only changing and moving the Captures folder, and it's not necessary to relocate the Videos folder and all its content, which you may still want to keep in the same location. Once you complete the steps, Game DVR will automatically continue to save your screenshots and clips in the new location without additional configurations in Settings or in the Xbox app.

    You can quickly confirm that Game DVR is using the new location on Settings > Gaming > Game DVR, and then checking the folder path for screenshots and games clips, which now should reflect the new location. Or in the Xbox app, you can go to Settings > Game DVR, and check the location for Saving captures.

    there is no location tab, and i have already tried creating a captures folder elsewhere, but this didn't change anything, i know that the xbox dvr looks for a captures folder, then once its found it, it will use that location but mine seems to be reluctant to do so
