How do i set up default location of all downloads to sd card for samsung galaxy tab SM T116

If you are trying to set it up for just files to download to the SD card, you would do that in whatever app you are using for the downloads. Say for example the browser.

However, if you are trying to set that up to download apps to the card, that is very different. In that case you would need to be running at least Android "Marshmallow" and have a device that the manufacturer hasn't restricted. If it has been, you won't be able to do it.


How to turn the "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 tablet.

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