    Installing to a second Drive. D: or external (Non Boot up Drives)

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    We understand your concern as you are looking for an option to move the game location from the C drive to the Drive D, which is an external drive.



    In this scenario, we would suggest you to perform these steps and check if that resolves your issue on both laptop and Desktop.



    1. As usual install the game on the PC’s in
      C Drive.
    2. Insert the external
      D drive
      to the PC.
    3. Press Windows + I key from the keyboard to launch
      Settings.
    4. Select Apps and click on
      Apps & features
      from the left pane.
    5. Search for the installed game from the list on the right pane.
    6. Single click on the game and select
      Move.
    7. Select the D drive under
      Choose a drive
      where you want to move the game.
    8. Restart the PC with the external drive connected and then launch the game.


    We await your response.
