Hard Drives

HP Recommended

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I just bought this computer.  It has several formatted drives.  My C: drive has the least space on it, where the 😧 drive has a lot of space.  How can I change the drives so that my C drive will have the most space.  Most of the apps I have install goes to the C: drive and now it is full.  I did find something on allocating space on drives but I got so far and what they were telling me to do was over my head so I backed out.  I don't understand why HP put the most space on the D drive instead of the C drive....nothing is going to the D drive.  Please help.

@shelia127,

The C drive has your OS.  By default, everything is stored on your C drive.  You can re-assign the save location(s). Go to Settings, and there is a box at the top. Type "storage", and the options will appear.

See the box at the top? Type in "storage".

 Then select the default save locations.
