Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Everything created on HP Pavillion/Windows XP Home(2002), and everything downloaded to it, is being stored on the D Drive instead of the C Drive. Is there a simple way to change default storage back to the C Drive as it should be? (C Drive has 69% free space, while D Drive is filled up, and you have to delete something to store anything new.)
Here are some suggestions; if they don't do it, just let me know and we'll try something else!
1. When you download anything from the Internet, it will usually give you the option of "Save" or "Run"; when you choose "Save" you should have the chance to specify where it will be saved to. Specify "C:\My Documents;" "My Documents" pops up all over the place, so it should be easy to find; a lot of programs (including download managers) will often default to it. (Default means it will happen if you don't do anything to change it.)
2. Go to Start>Programs>Accessories>Windows Explorer. When that comes up it will show you your drives and folders on the left hand side, and more folders and files on the right hand side. If you click on C: on the left hand side, it will show you all of the folders on C: below it and on the right hand side. Click your cursor on C: so that it is highlighted, move your mouse up to the File Menu, press File, and press New Folder. Name it "M's documents," "M's stuff," etc. Once that is done, you can save everything to there.
3. There is not room here to walk you through it, but go to Help and type in copy. Once you understand that, you can go back to Windows Explorer, copy the documents off of D: to C:\M's Stuff. Remember, you're just making a copy here. Once you have it all copied over, then you can go back and delete them from D:, but I wouldn't do that for a while, until you're sure you have everything you want or need on C:
4. WordPerfect has in it a place to specify where to save documents to. Go to Help in WordPerfect and type in location, files, or file locations. That will let you specify that all documents are saved to C:\M's Stuff.
5. If you need more help, just ask another question and I'll see if I can answer it for you.
P. S. It's not as hard as it might first appear!

File SAVE AS "C" not file SAVE I always save all of my files on a different drive from the OS.
