How to install software programs to D: so C: windows will recognize and load

HP Recommended
HP Envy laptop/128 gb c:drive-- 1tb D:
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I install files and programs to 1 TB 😧 and they will not open.  How can I install programs to 😧 and C: Windows will recognize installed programs --especially MS Office 2019? 

They all want to install on C: 128 GB SSD

On a demand basis, that simply can not be done.  Some gaming programs allow you to install the really large game data files to another space to save room on SSDs, but the app itself still gets installed to "C", like it or not.

 

The system registry, which all apps use, has to remain on "C", so trying to force apps to install to a different drive is doomed to failure.
