Changing the default directory for all Internet files

Hello

I want to change the default directory of my Internet access files like the Temp, cookies, download etc to a new hard drive. Actually, all data is stored in my SDD drive and I want to displace them to a new location.

Any help appreciated

Hello Martin,

You could move your "Temporary Internet Files" for Internet Explorer to a different location. The tutorial below can show the correct location of where to do this at, but just click on the "Move folder" button instead.
Internet Explorer - Temporary Internet Files - Disk Space Usage
The tutorial below can help show you how to change your default download location in Internet Explorer.

I'm not sure that you could move cookies though.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hello & thank you Shawn

I'm using Chrome for my browser. I did change the target directory for the download, but nothing for the temp file and cookies

Have a good evening
