In Windows 10, there’s a provision built to change the default install location of apps downloaded from the Official Store. If you lack free space on your system drive, Windows 10 lets you move installed apps to another drive from the default drive to gain some disk space.

Why move installed apps to another drive

Moving installed apps to another drive might not help users with hundreds of GB of free space on their system drive. And the good thing is you don’t need to re-install the app nor open the Command Prompt as an administrator to get the job done.

This feature is useful when the drive you have installed has run out of free space. By moving installed apps to another drive, you can quickly free up GB of space on your system drive.

The only downside of this feature is that it doesn’t allow you to migrate traditional desktop programs like TeamViewer or Microsoft Office. To migrate desktop programs, you will need to go for third party software.
