One of the great things that Microsoft have added inside Windows 8 is certainly the new Store for apps. But, what most users are worrying about when it comes to these apps installation is – where are these saved and installed? There are plenty of Windows users who would like to change this location to a drive in which they have enough free space. This tutorial will show, how to do that using Windows Registry Editor.

To get started follow the steps below.

Step 1: From your Windows 8 desktop, press Win+R on your keyboard.

Step 2: When Run window opens up, type regedit inside it and press Enter.

Step 3: If you got prompted by UAC click OK to continue.

Step 4: Inside Registry Editor window that opens up, on the left pane follow this path HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Appx.

Step 5: When you select Appx key, inside right pane you should see a string called PackageRoot. This string contains a location to which Windows 8 will save your Store apps.
