    I'd prefer to install Unity Hub in my D drive and keep it close to my other Unity Editor installs. However there doesn't seem to be an option for this. The default behavior is to install under C:\Program Files\Unity Hub which is a bit presumptuous.

    I have tried moving the installed Unity Hub folder into my D drive, but everytime it updates it reinstalls to C:\Program Files\Unity Hub and the auto uninstaller for Unity Hub doesn't do anything for the version installed in the D drive. Keep up the great work!

    Hi @Qubitz ,
    The Hub currently support alternative install path. You may set the path from the gear icon on the header.
    Hope this help,
    Joe

    That option is for the Unity installs, not the hub itself.

    Sorry for misunderstood the original question.
    We noted it down and will take it under consideration.

    Thanks for bringing the topic up

    How come this doesn't move the currently installed Unity Editors?
    Will it work if I just cut and paste all the currently installed editors to the new path?

    Hi @Gekigengar ,
    Cut and paste all the currently installed editors to the new path should technically work.
    Although this is not an intended use case, so I would not recommend it, the decision is yours.

    Has this been updated yet? I'd prefer to keep all my Unity things on a separate drive
