Using my SSD and HHD properly

Hi so I built my new rig and by the grace of god everything seems to be working. I installed all my essential software and am now moving on to my games. I wanted to know, is there a way to to install my programs onto my HHD (2TB) by default? Could I simply move my program (and program x86) folder to my HDD, or would I have to change settings to make that my default install location.
\
Also for steam games. Is there a way to have steam games, by default, install on my HDD? Im sure that is not difficult, but my final question is can I make my HDD my default steam folder, BUT keep a FEW games on my SSD (e.g. Left for dead2 and other multiplayer games)

  1. Best way I know how is to change the path when installing. It usually ask you where. For example I have 2 program file folders , C: and D: When installing a game that I need a little faster load time on I leave the path as C: if it's an indie game or one just for fun then you just need to change the drive letter. Hope that helps or someone might know more.

    Steam, you can designate multiple locations. It will ask for where when you install a new game.
