Install Store Apps Elsewhere

The Windows 10 November Update fixes another longstanding frustration for both mobile and desktop users, the inability to install Windows Store apps to external storage. Ever since the Windows Store debuted in Windows 8, it's forced you to install apps to your device's primary hard drive, a sore point for Windows tablet owners, or users who run Windows off a small SSD boot drive.

After you've installed the Windows 10 November Update, you can save apps to external storage or secondary drives by going to 'Start->Settings->System->Storage' after you've connected the storage to your PC, be it a thumb drive or SD card. From there, click the drop-down menu under 'New apps will save to' and select the external storage drive you want to use.
