Default for what? Downloads, My Computer, installed programs, all of them?

Is your F drive an internal hard drive partition?

"i have low disk space in c drive"

That's your fault, not Windows fault. Stop storing stuff on the C: partition. My guess is your My Documents folder is loaded. Try right clicking on the My Documents icon, click Properties, then click Move & place it in the F: partition.

And try running CCleaner-Slim. If you don't regularly clear out your temp internet files & temp folders, your system is probably loaded with useless junk.

To change the location of 'My Documents' which includes everything inside of the My Documents folder (be sure to say yes in number 5 to open up space on your c drive):

1.Click Start, and then point to My Documents.
2.Right-click My Documents, and then click Properties.
3.Click the Target tab.
4.In the Target box, do one of the following:
-Type the path to the folder location that you want, and then click OK. For example, D:\My Stuff. Make sure it isn't on the 'C:\' Drive as that will not make a difference.

If the folder does not exist, the Create Message dialog box is displayed. Click Yes to create the folder, and then click OK.

-Click Move, click the folder in which to store your documents, and then click OK twice.

If you need to create a new folder, click Make New Folder. Type a name for the folder, and then click OK twice.

5.In the Move Documents box, click Yes to move your documents to the new location, or click No to leave your documents in the original location.
