Change Ninite's install directory. (or any other programs for that matter)

Like many other people I was troubled by this post on Ninite's website stating that they won't support custom install locations. "BUT WHAT ABOUT MY SSD!" Was the general thought :)

However there is a little hack around that will help people who have multiple drives.

1. Open regedit (open start and type regedit)
2. Browse to these keys: (If you're running 64 bit Windows there'll also be a (x86 version of each)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion

3. Double click these entries (2 for 32 bit users 4 for 64 bit)
4. Edit them to where you want programs to be installed.
5. Reboot your computer for these to take effect

And there you have it! A simple workaround that will save you hours in the long run and allows you to use the ultra simple Ninite installer.

My monitor's picture is shifted too far to the left

A quick fix for anyone who might have the annoyance that I had for a long time.

Simply go to your monitor settings and click auto adjust (it's probably under settings).

There. It should be fixed.

Now this will be archived somewhere in the web until someone who needs it finds it.
