How do I change where Apps are stored on PC?

I use a little net book with very limited storage space on several different sd cards and big hard drives. Itunes is on a removable sd card and only my very essential programmes stay on the main drive (8gb). Music stored elsewhere.

I recently got a new iphone and have realised the apps stored on itunes will automatically save to that C drive. I've gotten to a point where big apps like dictionaries and games are screwing up my poor little net book.

How can I move the storage location? I have ample space on D and E drives but can't see a way to change it....

In iTunes, go to edit>preference>advanced, then change iTunes media location.After that manually (cut and paste) move your iTunes media folder to that new location.

Hope this helps.
