    Hello,
    1. I just bought SD card and everything was great. I set the SD card as a default storage but when I try to move the apps to the SD card, there supposed to be a button saying "move to sd card"
    However I don't see it.
    I did everything the toturial was saying but still nothing. Any help?

    2. How can I set a folder as the default download folder?

    Think you very much.

    Make sure your SD card is mounted in Settings >> General >> Storage, and that the app in question is movable.

    As for number 2, that can be determined by some browsers' settings, if that's what you mean.

    With Android 5.x the whole partition scheme changed and volumes are now virtualized. Since this will adapt dynamically, there's no longer a need for the 'move to SD' option and it was removed from most roms. Some still have it, but it's not going to save you any space. Now with 6.x (Marshmallow) if you have an external SD card you can extend that as storage which will allow that to be used as internal storage.

    Yeah, but games I downloaded before I had the SD card are still taking space from my internal memory. I wanna move them to the SD card.
    I tried it via an external app but it just led me to the same menu where the move button is missing.
