    Hi,

    The Pages/Numbers/Keynote are 3 applications installed in the /Applications folder.

    I would like to create a custom "iWork" folder in the /Applications folder, and move the 3 applications into that custom folder.

    Thus I am changing the installation directory. If I did that, can "App Store" still be able to update the 3 applications in future ?

    Any advice appreciated.
    Rgds.

    The app store expects things to stay where they are installed. Software Update can get really upset if you move things.
