Tip & How-To about Microsoft Windows XP Professional
I like to keep my main drive running mean and lean with mainly just the OS running on my C: drive
On my second drive I usually call this D: I like to install the majority of all my programs however, windows always wants to install programs to “c:Program Files” to avoid changing this everytime copy and paste the bold into a reg file and double click it.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
"CommonFilesDir"="D:Program FilesCommon Files"
Remember you have to reboot for your changes to show also the Common Files will need to be changed the hex code is the %ProgramFiles% declaration.
NOTE: I change my CD/DVD-ROM to either V: W: or R: using the Computer Management Disk Manager to keep it out of the way
