By tsos ·
I have a Toshiba laptop and 2 drive partitions; c and d. The c is almost full and the di virtually empty. I want to be using the d partition now as my default drive.

Depending on what do you want to default to the D drive. When you install new programs just point the installation path to the drive. When you are downloading music or movies store them into D drive. I don't believe that you can just "check the tick box" to make your D drive default. The good rule of thumb is to store data (Movies, music..) into your D drive and only the program installation to be on the C Drive.
For example you would install MS office on the C drive and store the office files to folder on the D drive.

You can indeed set one drive (well, partition) as the default for user-created files. In Windows, right-click the 'My Documents' folder, click Properties, and change the location to . If asked to move files, let it do so.

For Linux, resubmit as a 'Q&A'; someone will respond, I'm sure.
