As the size of hard drives increase, more people are using partitions to separate and store groups of files.

XP uses the C:Program Files directory as the default base directory into which new programs are installed. However, you can change the default installation drive and/ or directory by using a Registry hack.

Go to :-

– Start > Run

– Type “regedit” (without “” NOOBS!)

– Go to this directory…
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersion

– Look for the value named ProgramFilesDir. by default,this value will be C:Program Files. Edit the value to any valid drive or folder and XP will use that new location as the default installation directory for new programs.
