you can use an app from the play store for moving everything. If you want to move your whole android i think you can change it aswell but not sure how. And you can change download folder in your browser

It depends on what phone you are using. For some brands of phones, there is such an options that allows to manage phone memory and SD card and move data from phone memory to SD card directly.
If you phone does not provide such a function, then you may rely on some third party apps. As far as I'm concerned, ApowerManager is such an app that may allow you move data and apps and I used it to backup my apps before. Not a bad choice.

I'm using a ZTE Tempo X with Android 7.1.1 The phone only comes with 8GB storage so you have to use a SD card for storage. I brought a brand new one from Amazon and can't get it to become "internal" storage. I click on Settings - Storage - and Save Location is grey as in you can't change it. When I click on the SD card the only options I get are Rename - Remove SD Card - Format as Portable - Migrate data.

Hope someone can help me ASAP. I've been reading this thread for a while and can't figure this out. Making me feel like an old man at the age of 32
 
Not all phones can have their SD card able to be "Internal" storage. First you have to be running a newer version of Android (6.0, a.k.a "Marshmallow, or newer) and many manufacturers actually restrict this option. Making it impossible to do on their devices.

Just so you know.

Also, just posting to an old thread may not get you an answer. In that case you may want to make your own actual question thread.

If you read my post it says I'm using version 7.1.1. Also the phone only comes with 8GB because they want you to use an SD card for the hard drive... Thought I made that clear.
