Unfortunately, Android KitKat took away the easy route to that from the Settings menu but it can be done, with some patience. You could start by rooting the machine but it's possible you can find Root File Manager in the Play Store and run that without rooting. That should open up the file structure so you can see the external SD card.

Alternatively, you could download Terminal Emulator from the Store and use some simply command line entries to navigate your way. When you open the teminal you're at a black form where the Command Line lives. At the prompt type
ls
and hit Enter. That shws you the LiSt of folders and files. sd card might be in the list and if it does, type
cd sdcard
and hit Enter. You've used Change Directory and are now inside the card but all that proves is it's recognised by KitKat.

Hit the cross in the top right hand corner to exit the TE and post back if you want to know about moving files around in there.

I did it in the following way
#1:-Go to settings
#2:- Go to storage
#3:- You will see a default write disk option which has been set to phone storage. Set it to External Storage.
#4:- Your phone will prompt to reboot. Agree with it and you are good to go.
