laptop split hard drive problem

ok I bought a new laptop a while back for gaming when my desktop died. well when trying to install something today I was told I didn't have enough hard drive space for it. this confused me as I installed very little on this laptop. Mainly because I am waiting for diablo 3. well it turns out when i bought the laptop the hard drive is partitined into to parts OS and data. as the C and D drives repectively. my problem is every is defalting to the C drive the OS one which has very little space. IS their any way I can flip the 2 or have things default to the D drive? I'd rather not have to copy paste everything like I am now doing.

After you save something to the D: drive it should keep saving it there until you change it again. Is this not the case ?

My default location is my desktop, after I scan it and do what I want with it, I put it on my 2nd or 3rd drive.

Your snipping tool is located in Accessories.
Go to Start/ All Programs and toggle down to Accessories where the snipping tool is to be clicked on.
Then adjust the size you want to show and then give it a name and save it.

Once saved then come back to this link and look for the paperclip and upload that saved item
You can then post it here for us to see.

Post back if you need more help!
