Games folder help

Heya,

So I’ve been creating a folder named ”Games”, in the ”Programs x86”, since this is where both Origin and Steam auto selects the installation destination.

Although, when then selecting my created ”Games” folder, to have everything in one place and just a little more organized, Origin somehow still bypasses this and still creates their own ”Origin Games” outside of my own folder, but still inside ”Programs x86”.

Anyone that knows why this is and maybe how to adress it?...

Thanks,
Dawelio

They do have a separate folder for download cache, and then they have a folder for old retro games. There is a setting to change it I believe.
