| p.1 #2 · Downloading software via internet and/or CD/DVD? |
I have a question. How can I ensure that when I download things from the net or from a CD/DVD it gives me the option to choose which drive to download too? Is there a setting in windows that I must change, enable, tweak?
Here's my observation, when I downloaded Bitdefender, it did not give me an option to choose which drive to download to, it just had two options; run or cancel and it showed which drive the software would be installed. I clicked run and it automatically downloaded to the C: (main drive), but I wanted to download it to another drive. In contrast, when I downloaded the Batman game (man these games space hungry) from the website, I got the option, via the download window (browse option) and I was able to install the program on my other drive (E: ). It seems that some programs give you the option to choose which drive and others don't, so is there a setting in Windows that I must tweak to ensure that all downloads give me the option to choose which drive to install the program(s)?
When downloading the install file itself, it depends on browser settings and they should always have way to set where to store the install file. When installing, often you need to select something like expert or advanced level install option and then you can usually select what directory to install too. There might be a few that simply chose for you no matter what. There may be some way to set windows default install directory though, I'd try searching google for that.
