How to change default storage in Windows 10

By default Windows 10 will store your Documents/Pictures /Music /Video on default drive, that user/libraries. Usually it will be on Windows’s installation drive, C:\.

But Windows 10 let you move the storage location in a new desired drive.

For changing the default location of the new Documents you will create in future, go to Start- Settings – System – Storage and change the Document drive C to a desired drive.

Windows will automatically create a user folder with document sub folder for keeping your new documents.
Next time you hit Ctrl + S / Save button on MS Word it will automatically locate the new Document folder.

Keep it simple and clean
