Change Default Save Location For Different File Types In Windows 10

A nice aspect of Windows 10 is that it lets you change default save location for different file types. Lets see what it is all about.

Microsoft has put in a lot of effort and hard work in making Windows 10 ‘The people’s OS’. Through different surveys and Insider programs, they’ve collected a ton of feedback so that Windows 10 could be developed on the guidelines of the public. Finally, after much development and analysis, Windows 10 struck the market in September 2014.

While I refuse to say that Windows 10 brings a huge change to Windows 8.1, it does however improve the OS in some aspects. One of the most notable differences in its UI is the change in implementation of the Start Menu. It has reverted back to what it was previously in Windows 7 albeit in an improved manner. You can play around with it by changing it’s size and also make groups of apps in it and move them around.

Some other distinctive features of Windows 10 are the inclusion of brand new features such as the ability to enable find my deviceautomatically change time zones etc.

Windows 10 also gives a little bit more power to your Settings App. The Settings App is more minimal version of the much more complex Control Panel. It offers many things that the Control Panel does and also follows the graphical pattern of other Windows applications, thus making it easier to use for less technology-friendly folks. It was first included in Windows 8 and has since carried on into Windows 10 due to its increasing popularity.

One of the intuitive things you can do through your Settings App is change default save location for different file types. This is a pretty handy feature for users who are used to playing with loads of files everyday and those who like to keep their data organized. Furthermore, it also keeps your back in time of storage space troubles.

Step 1: Open Settings.

Step 2: Click on System: Notifications, Display, Power.

Step 3: In the left side menu, click on Storage.

Step 4: Select on which drive you’d like to change default download location as shown in the image below.
