Change The Default Location For Installing Applications.

Change The Default Location For Installing Applications.

As the Hard sizes are increasing we are using Partition system in our Operating system.As when we install any program in our computer it automatically assigns
"C:\Program Files" directory for installation. This causes a lots space problem in our HDD.

XP uses the C:\Program Files directory as the default base directory into which new programs are installed. However, you can change the default installation drive and/ or directory by using a Registry hack.

Go to :-

- Start > Run

- Type “regedit” (without “” NOOBS!)

- Go to this directory…
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion

- Look for the value named ProgramFilesDir. by default,this value will be C:\Program Files. Edit the value to any valid drive or folder and now XP will use that new location as the default installation directory for new programs.

happy installiation...
