How can I make anything I download on LG Tribute 5 default to SD card? I have very little internal storage left but can't get apps to download to external memory.
 
Well, you will first have to be running Android "Marshmallow". Any lower version will not allow for this. Second, your phones manufacturer will have to have not restricted this option. Sadly, sometimes they do. If you have "Marshmallow" they try the following...


How to turn external SD card into internal storage on "Marshmallow".

NOTE: Please be sure you start with a blank SD card. It needs to be blank because when the card is converted to "Internal" storage, it will be formatted (wiped) and encoded (making the cards data only readable by that device).

1. Go to device “Settings”, then select “Storage”.
2. Select your "SD Card", then tap the “three-dot menu“ (top-right), now select “Settings” from in there.
3. Now select “Format as internal”, and then “Erase & Format”.
4. Your SD Card will now be formatted as internal storage.
5. Reboot your phone.

NOTE: If you don't reboot the phone, many things may not work correctly, so make sure you do.
