Change the default installation folder for windows xp

Friday, August 7, 2009 ·

This pc hack involves editing the registry so be extra careful, you might also want to make a backup copy of the registry just in case.

As a default, Windows xp installs applications at the directory "c:/program files" in order to change the default installation folder of windows xp you will need first to know how to access the windows registry. Go to the "start" menu and then press "run" then type "regedit".

Then follow this path:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion

Look for the value named ProgramFilesDir, it will have a value of "C:\Program Files" What you need to do next is to change the value to any valid drive in your computer or laptop.
(e.g "D:\Program Files") assuming you have another drive.
