    cant change windows store install location


    I am unable to install games from windows store on my other drive. even though i have changed the default drive for apps to install on they still install on my C drive instead of my A drive and when i click install i am not given the option to choose which drive it installs to. This was an option that i was given until today after clicking install. How do i fix this?

    :)

    Windows store Cant change default location

    Im trying to download games from the Windows Store/Xbox App but cant install them onto my games hard drive because its not listed in the drop down menu or any other menu choices in the storage settings. The drive works and is listed in "This PC" and in Disk Management.
    I have an SSD installed specifically for games and want to install the games onto it. Here is a screenshot with the games drive (G) not listed.
