Question from Dominique_6 : "How to add everything to my SD card on my lg tribute"

I'm running out of internal memory and I still have room on my SD card.
 
For those of you waiting for answers this thread needs an overhaul ... a fair bit of the content relates to older fones.

@Dominique 6. You can free up some memory by clearing the cache on your applications ... go into application manager and open each one at a time and clear the cache.

Beyond that use the same area to uninstall applications that you do not use.

Question from Brian Is Grok : "Best fix for LG K550 (Stylus 2 on T-Mobile) for Storage problem?"

What is the best (quickest/easiest/non-root-requiring) fix for LG K550 (Stylus 2 on T-Mobile) for Storage problem?
As I understand it, TMO/LG, in their infinite wisdom, removed the option in Marshmallow 6.01 to default storage onto the SD card, or to relocate apps to the SD card.
Beyond frustrated.
Not a novice, old windows mobile phone hacker, decent experience with Android, could probably learn to root if I had to.
PLEASSSSSE HELLLP!!
