Sorry but you do not change drive letters to address a disk consumption issue.

What you can do is direct any new saves to folders on the c: drive.

Be aware that if you fill up your c: past 15% free space you can end up with an unbootable/undefragmentable drive. Might want to review what you are saving and how many copies of the same thing exist.

I think what wanderer meant was;

"What you can do is direct any new saves to folders on the d: drive."

It's a good day when you learn something

You select "save as" and browse to a folder on d:

Or put a shortcut to the folder on d: on your desktop and select it when you save something from the web
