how to change photoshops temp folder location?

photoshop is using drive C as temp,
but my C has only 1-2GB left and photoshop is using it and needs more every time i make large image files.
my drive F is 200GB so i would like to change the temp location to F.
i checked all the options in the program, but nothing there.
cant find anything in the internet either. somebody knows how to tell photoshop to use a different drive for temp files?

using Adobe Photoshop Elements 4.0

Hello,

Do you have an answer? I have the same issue and I'm looking to resolve it because it's not a case of lack of space but a case of writing right on the c:\.

Thanks!

ETA by request:

"To change the location of the temporary storage/scratch disc in Photoshop, go to Edit - Preferences - Plug-Ins & Scratch Disks. The scratch disk is by default set to your "Startup" disk, the one you have Windows installed on. Change the option in the "First" field to the drive letter corresponding to the drive you wish to use by selecting it from the dropdown menu. Depending on your system, you can add more disks in "Second" and "Third", but make sure you always set the "Startup" disk as the last disk, so you always have that to fall back on, while at the same time limiting the chance of it being used as much as possible."
