Windows 10 adds the ability to install apps and Windows Store games on the microSD, USB drives and non-system partitions
In the past month windows.uservoice.com launched the petition, which users have asked Microsoft to allow the installation of applications and games from Windows Store microSD or other removable storage device. It turns out that this possibility was partially added in Windows 10 build 9888, which earlier this week posted on the Internet.
In the sale increasingly, there are compact tablets that are offered at bargain prices, but only with 16 GB of internal memory: the problem here is that at the moment in Windows 8.1 there is no possibility to install or move apps and games to removable memory. Fortunately, Microsoft is secretly working on implementing this feature in Windows 10, what hinted one of the options found in the local group policy Editor. In the parameter description says it allows installation and removal of apps from the Windows Store on a non-system volumes, such as USB drives, memory cards microSD and the secondary sections.
It is interesting to note that the description says that this feature is supported by Windows 8.1 update 2: it is obvious that in the «eight» feature is missing or hidden, even with all current updates, but nothing prevents Microsoft to include it with a future update. Even in Windows 10 build 9888 is no graphical interface to specify the installation directory for the modern apps, but probably it will appear in the next official release of the Tech Preview or the final version of the operating system.
