    How do I change the Windows 10 default start menu option


    Hi, I'm trying to change the default menu that show up when you click the Windows Icon in the lower left corner of Windows 10. I removed all the tiles from the start menu, so when I click the icon a blank screen comes up. I want "All apps" to come up when I click the Windows icon.

    This is what show up when I click the Windows Icon: https://i.imgur.com/KlomY1v.png

  2. Change default drive: How do I change the default drive that my system will install programs on?

    Hi Ed,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community. I understand the inconvenience caused to you and will assist you in solving the issue.

    In order to change the default installation directory, please change the following in the registry.

    • Press Windows key + X, type regedit and press Enter.
    • Locate the following: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion
    • Right click on the value named ProgramFilesDir & change the default value
      C:\Program Files to the path you want to install all your programs in.
    • Click OK and Exit.

    Windows, by default, will now install your programs in the new drive or path.

    Note: This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur
    if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back
    up and restore the registry, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

  3. Change default drive: How do I change the default drive that my system will install programs on?

    My problem is Windows 10 has already been installed. How do I move the existing stuff, as well as anything new?

    I have completely filled up an SSD (Solid State Drive) which holds 236 Gig. I've tried removing all the cloud software which got me 38 GB but 2 days later it had filled up again. I figure the only way to get more space is to move the two Program Files to
    another drive.
