    I have an original Dell Venue 8 pro on Win 8.1. The device performs nicely but is crippled by only 32 GB of storage even though it has an SD card slot. For some reason, in the upgrade from Win 8.0 to 8.1, Microsoft disabled the ability to install Windows Store apps to the SD card. Currently, they can only be installed to the C: drive, which is almost entirely full. I've already removed the recovery partition and have designated One Drive files online-only. I run disk cleanup constantly- Windows 8.1 is just too bloated. Does anyone know whether Windows 10 will re-enable the ability to install store apps to removable media? Considering that cheap tablets are being released with minimal built-in storage, it seems silly to restrict this function. Although desktop apps can be installed to the SD card, the limitation of Win Store apps defeats the purpose of having a Windows tablet.

    Yes, they already can.
    Go to Settings, System, Apps & Features, select an app, and click "Move".
