Did you know that the Windows Store allows you to choose a drive to install when you download large games or applications from it? Surely most of us know that by default we can install all Windows 10 applications on a different partition, external disk, USB or SD card or even move Windows 10 applications to another disk, but Windows Store offers this option before downloading as a relatively new option that few of us know about.

Select a drive in the Windows store

January 2021 Update:

We now recommend using this tool for your error. Additionally, this tool fixes common computer errors, protects you against file loss, malware, hardware failures and optimizes your PC for maximum performance. You can fix your PC problems quickly and prevent others from happening with this software:

  • Step 1 : Download PC Repair & Optimizer Tool (Windows 10, 8, 7, XP, Vista – Microsoft Gold Certified).
  • Step 2 : Click “Start Scan” to find Windows registry issues that could be causing PC problems.
  • Step 3 : Click “Repair All” to fix all issues.


When you open the Windows store and are looking for an application or game to download on your Windows 10 computer, click the Install button to download and install the application on your computer.

The button becomes Works and you will soon see a popup asking you to select a drive with enough space for installation. From the drop-down menu, select the drive you want to install and click the Install button Install.

If none of your drives has enough space, it offers you a button to create space – which otherwise remains grayed.

Windows Store does this before downloading the game or application so that you can select the drive on which you want to install it.

This function may not be available for all applications. It is only available for large download applications.
