Move Apps from Your Tablet to a MicroSD Card

If you are running out of storage space because of all your favorite apps, you may be able to move some apps to an external storage location, like a microSD card, if the apps support it. That way, you can make room for even more apps!

Available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Move Apps to MicroSD Card

This feature may not be available for all apps.

Before you relocate an app to a new storage location, make sure you have a microSD card inserted in your tablet. Otherwise, your apps will have nowhere to go.

Navigate to Settings, and then touch Apps. Swipe to and touch the app you want to move. Touch Storage, and then touch CHANGE. Choose SD card, and then touch MOVE to change the app's storage location.

Note: If you do not see the CHANGE option available, you can't change the app's storage location. For example, pre-loaded apps cannot be moved.
