Windows 10: "Change where new content is saved" to shares?

Recommended Posts

I created a small `C:` drive vdisk, installed Windows 10, installed some apps like Steam that allow further installation on network drives, used shares for that, and no problem.


But now I need to install some things from the Windows Store (some of which are quite large). Unfortunately, if I go into Settings > System > Storage > Change where new content is saved:



I'm not allowed to change any of these--they are all locked to the C drive only. I have mapped drive letters for my shares, and they work as storage locations for other contexts, just not this one.


If there's a way to change the install location of new apps without using this screen, that's fine too, I just don't know what that is?


Thanks for any help!
