    I have the Samsung Galaxy S5 with Android 6.0.1 and want to change screenshot storage location to my SD card. How in the heck do I do this?
    I've been able to move/relocate the camera storage to the SD card. When I connect the phone to the PC and use my file explorer I see the camera pictures at card\DICM\Camera. I want to do the same for the Screenshots.
    On the card I created (1) /Screenshots and (2) Pictures/Screenshots but this was not accepted as the default storage location. Now the screenshots are stored in a hidden folder somewhere in the base storage.

    they ONLY reside under /Device storage/Pictures/Screenshots

    you just have to live with that.
    you can move them to the sd card, but you can't change the default location.

    Once I use them, I delete them.

    Tks, since the Screenshots really have a short usage life I'll just delete them after uses as suggested.

    yeah, I occasionally take a look at them and think "of what value is this today?"

    usually none, because it was an answer to a specific question, and has no value to me on a daily basis.
