You’ll find the new option, called Change installation locations, in the settings for storage devices if you have external drivers or a storage expansion card attached to your console. The new setting will let you select a specific drive as an installation location. In addition, it includes a Let Xbox decide option that will automatically install games and apps on the fastest drive with available space.

In addition to the console changes, the Xbox September update brings a new feature to the Xbox Game Bar on Windows PCs that will help you generate a shareable link for all captures.
