  1. For steam, the easiest way is shutdown steam, move the folder "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps" to "D:\steamapps\" then open a command shell and use the mklink command
    its either
    MKLINK /h "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps" d:\steamapps\
    or
    MKLINK /h d:\steammapps\ "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps"

    This makes a hard link between the folder structure of drive c and drive d, all applications looking for this folder on drive c will automagically use drive d instead.

    Alternately you could concatenate your drive, but that's much more complex.
  2. How do i open up the command shell to enter those?
  3. I got it figured out. thank you for your help!
