How do I make the sd card the default storage location on android marshmallow?

Well if I remember correctly, that particular phone won't allow for making the SD card "Internal" storage versus the typical "External" storage. However, I am including the instructions on how to set it up below. Just in case you wish to try. :)

Note: It is very common for some manufacturers to have restricted this option on their phones and tablets. Why they do it I cannot say, but it does happen.

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.

The only problem I have is that for me, the sd card tab doesn't have the three-dot menu. I don't know why.
