Default downloaded files

whenever i download something, after it is downloaded there is no way to change where it installs, because i have a Sony computer, they purposley fill the C drive to make you use the D drive... i have no idea why, but do u guys know a way i can set it so files automaticly install to the D drive?

Im not overly sure. I'm sure this is of no help to you but i thought during the installation you can pick where you would like the program to go.

It seems like you want it to automatticlly do it, try google i'll give it a quick search as well to see if i can come up with something for you

I did some searching on google but couldn't come up with something good, i'm sure someone will be on later that can answer your question, there's a vast amount of knowledge here.

You can change the default installation drive by doing the following;

Run the Registry Editor and go to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion.

Look for the value named ProgramFilesDir.

The value should be by default C:\Program Files. Edit the value to any valid drive or folder; XP will use that new location as the default installation directory for new programs.

Make sure you back up your registry first, just in case.
