    "move" is greyed out for Netflix app


    I'm asking this again. I see a thread from over a year ago with the same question but the windows 10 user said the solutions offered didn't work and the thread was locked. Is this what passes for help these days? No answer and just lock the thread?

    So I'm asking it again. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app from the Microsoft store, but every time I go to settings-add remove programs to move it, the "move" button is greyed out.

    Is there some other way to get it moved? I have my settings set to load new apps as well as movies and tv shows to my D: drive instead of C: drive, but the netflix app always goes to C: and the movies and tv shows I download through it always go to C: as well.

    I used to use windows 7, which was such a solid OS. Windows 10 has been nothing but a nightmare for me. I've had to reinstall the OS multiple times because it would constantly break my software with every update, I spent countless hours with tech support, and every time I try to look up some "solution" to my problem, it never applies like this issue because things don't work the way they're explained in the articles for example, move for the netflix app is available in the article, but not when I go there I have other laptop software that I gave up on using because I didn't want to have to reinstall windows again just get it working again.

    Someone please give me a solution from an advanced windows tech who can GUARANTEE getting the app moved and saving to my other drive. If you're just a tech support guy who's reading from their script, don't even bother. If that's all you're doing, you can just give me the documents you're reading from and I can look it up myself.

    :)

  2. Unable to move Netflix app in apps and features, move button is greyed out.

    I'm trying to move the Windows app Netflix to my second hard drive because the app doesn't have a download location drop down. How do I do it, and why is it grayed out? (Same deal with modification)

    Netflix

    Hi Marshall3,

    There could be a number of factors as to why you are having issues launching the Netflix app. This could be caused by a software conflict or due to an issue with the application itself.

    I suggest that you reset your Netflix application by following the steps provided below:

    • Go to Settings > Apps > Apps & Features.
    • Click the Netflix app from the list and then choose Advanced options.
    • Click Reset.

    If the issue persists, you can consider uninstalling and reinstalling the device. To uninstall, follow these steps:

    • Go to Settings > Apps > Apps & Features.
    • Click the Netflix app from the list and then choose Uninstall.

    Let us know how it goes and we'll assist you further if needed.
