Move apps from your tablet to a microSD card

If you are running out of storage space because you have too many favorite apps, you should try to move some to external storage, like a microSD card. That way, you can make room for even more apps!

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

Move apps to microSD card

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 tap Apps. Swipe to and select the app you want to move. Tap Storage, and then tap Change. Choose SD card, and then tap Move to change the app's storage location.

If you do not see the Change option available, you can't change the app's storage location. For example, preloaded apps cannot be moved.
