User Questions:

1. How do I change the location where Microsoft Office is installed?

Do the following right after you reinstall Windows: A drop-down box appears under each new content type under Settings > Storage > Change Where New Content is Saved. Point them all to your HDD. It might or might not redirect your new Office 365 installation (I hope you saved that product key!).

2. Is it possible to move Microsoft Office from the C drive to the D drive?

Yep. Because Office 2019 is installed using click-to-run technology, there is no way to move it to D drive.

3. What is the procedure for installing Office 2016 on the D drive?

Microsoft’s 2016 installation process has been “improved” by removing the option to specify where it should be installed. However, the documents will default to D: if you don’t install to D. After that, normally install (in each of the applications). Go to the File menu, then to the Options command, then to the Save option.


4. Is it possible to install Microsoft Office on a D drive?

No, office 365 cannot be installed on any other drive; it must be installed on the system drive to function properly.

5. In Office 365, how do I change the default save location?

  1. Click Options in the Office application where you want to change the default save location.
  2. Toggle to the Save tab.
  3. To save your changes, click the OK button after you’ve selected your new default save location.
