    Hi, I'm new to the forums and a beginner to programming and using Unity.

    I have an SSD tied to my C: drive that I installed my OS on (Windows 8.1). Although it makes my computer faster, it also doesn't allow for much space, and I rely on a 2TB HDD (D: drive) to store the majority of my files.

    My default file location for new Unity projects is: C:\Users\MyName\Documents\New Unity Project

    I've tried changing the file path to a different area in my D: drive, but it doesn't allow me to create a new project then.

    Is there someway that I can change the default file path to one that saves the project to my D: drive? Any help is appreciated!

    In the New project window (at least on a Mac) I can click the three blue dots to the right side of the Location text field and choose any folder I want. Does that not work for you? What happens?

    Alternatively, create a symlink to point the New Unity Project folder onto your d:\ drive.

    It's been resolved. I'm not sure exactly what happened, but it's allowing me to direct the project to my D: drive now, and I didn't need to create a symlink. Thanks for your help.

    Where is the "Location text field" - I must change the location of my projects on my Mac HD.
    Spent half an hour trying to do this without success so far :(
