  1. Microsoft Store Unable To change DL Location


    Up until now as of this post the games I would download gave me the option to pick which drive I wanted to install on. Now for some reason I'm not able to. It will only let me use my c drive. Which isn't a huge ssd (I have only my os on). I have tried switching the default location to my other drives also tried resetting the app and restarting my pc. I don't know what happened between the time I could to now but it is very irritating. Also don't have any problem installing games to other drives with steam it just seems to be microsoft store.

    :)
