Hello guys.. Today, I'll show you how to download files directly to your SD Card on your android phone.. Here are the steps depending on your Android version. 

Method One of Three:

Android 7.0 (Nougat)




Open your Android’s Settings.
 It’s the gear icon () typically found in the app drawer.


  • As of Android 6.0 (Marshmallow), you can configure your SD card as part of your internal storage. This makes it so you can download Play Store apps directly to the card.


  • This method involves formatting (erasing) the SD card.


  • You will not be able to take the SD card out and use it in another device (unless you erase all of its data).




Scroll down and tap Storage.



Select your SD card.
 It may be called something like “External Storage” or “SD Card.”



Tap ⁝.
 It’s at the top-right corner of the screen.



Tap Change storage type.
 This may be called “Storage Settings” on some devices.




Tap Format as internal.



Select a storage option and tap Next.
 Some devices allow you to choose from two storage options:

  • If you want apps to save their data files (such as the cache) to your SD card in addition to apps, select Use as an internal storage for both apps and data.


  • If you only want apps to be stored on the card, select Use as internal storage for apps only.





Tap Erase & Format.
 The data on the card will be erased and then set up to allow downloads. You’ll see a confirmation message once the format is complete.


Method Two of Three:

Android 6.0 (Marshmallow)





Open your Android’s Settings.
 It’s the gear icon () typically found in the app drawer.

  • As of the release of Android 6.0 (Marshmallow), it is possible to configure your SD card as part of your internal storage. This makes it possible to download Play Store apps directly to the card.


  • This method involves formatting (erasing) the SD card. Make sure to use a blank card or one you’ve already backed up elsewhere.


  • This method makes it so you cannot take the SD card out and use it in another device (unless you erase all of its data).





Scroll down and tap Storage.




Select your SD card.
 It may be called something like “External Storage” or “SD Card.”





Tap ⁝.
 It’s at the top-right corner of the screen.




Tap Settings.



Tap Format as internal.
 Now you’ll see a warning that lets you know the data on the card will be erased.





Tap Erase & Format.
 The card will now format as internal storage. Once the card is formatted, apps you download from the Play Store will typically save there by default.

  • Some apps are not able to download to an external card. Such apps will still be installed in the device’s internal storage.


Method Three of Three:

Android 5.0 (Lollipop) and Earlier




Open your Android’s file manager.
 It’s the folder icon labeled something like My Files, File Manager, or Files.




  • Tap ☰ or ⁝. It’s at the top-right corner of the screen. The menu button varies by device, but you’ll know you’re in the right place if you see a menu that contains a “Settings” option.
  • If you’re using an older Android, tap the menu button on your device.


Tap Settings.





Tap Set home directory.
 It’s in the main panel under the “Select directories” header.





Tap SDCard.
 This may have a different name, such as “extSdCard.”

Tap Done. Downloads will now save to your SD card by default.
