You can use the .libPaths() to print the default directory of package installation.

For instance:

> .libPaths()

[1] "C:/Users/intellipaat/Documents/R/R-3.6.0/library"

You can change the directory from default as follows:

.libPaths("C:/Users/intellipaat/Rpackages/ )

This creates a Rpackages folder to store packages that will be installed afterward.
