  1. The widgets icon seems to have changed its default location

I normally have the taskbar align icons to the left which until now had included widgets but tested switching them to the center, whereupon the widget icon moved to the to the left side and was the only icon on that side. I have tried dragging widgets back to its normal location but it seems to be fixed in place with no options to move it.System is AMD Ryzen 7900x/64GB/2TB OS drive/Win 11 fully patched via normal release channelFor some reason I cannot upload the screenshot of the tas

  3. Changing the default storage designation for the Microsoft Windows Store and various apps.

    Hi Isaac,

    The default storage location for the Windows store and apps is in system location where Windows is stored (This PC-> C drive), if you want to change the default location of the apps then I suggest you to follow the below steps to change the settings
    and check if it helps.

    • Open Settings and click on the System icon.
    • Click on Storage on the left side, on the right side under
      Save locations, select the drive to where you want your
      documents
      , music, pictures, and/or
      videos
      to be saved to by default.
    • Click/tap on Apply.

    The above settings option is available only from the Windows version (10586), I suggest you to check in which version of Windows build in installed on your computer.

    Please get back to us with an update on this issue, we will be happy to assist you further.

    Thank you
