If you want to boot from that drive, go into the bios & then your > Boot Options.

That also rather assumes you have an OS on the external that supports booting from a usb drive.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

"I save default to my external hard drive"

Are you using a program to save or doing it manually?

When you use a program, you select the drive from where you want copy from, then select the drive you want that copy to go to.

I use this one.

"I want to make this external hard drive my default drive for these"

The problem with that is it's possible the drive letter could change. For example, let's say the default directory of the external is F:\. Then let's say for some reason you disconnect the external & while it's disconnected, you plug in a USB jumpdrive which becomes F:\. If you reconnect the external while the jumpdrive is still in place, it will become G:\.
