How to change were windows saves all programs and documents from C: to D:?

My desktop has 2 disks C:222 GB with no more space and D: 931GB free space.


Everytime I install a new program it saves into c:, how can I move all my programs to D and all documents to get stored in D;? and only leave C: for windows?


Thank you

The installer defaults to the system drive no matter the affiliated drive letter, while it is commonly is c:

change destination during install.

Does your userprofile c:\users\<username>
Large?

What you might want to consider is relocating the folder desktop, documents, appdata\roaming  favorites, etc. from being contain within the profile on C: to d:\users\<username>

Much depends on what consumes your space

tell us what disk drives they are (model is found in device manager)
you can replace the 200 Gb drive with a larger one for 60$  - 500 GB drive ssd :  Amazon.com : ssd 500gb 
1000 GB SSD for about 80-90$    Amazon.com : 1TB Internal SSD 

you only need to image the old drive to the new with aan imaging tool like paragon, and aomai (all free)
and if the old drive is HDD - the SSD will show a nice speed improvement too
