comment Is there any way to Move applications in phone memory to SD Card?
I've just added the app2sd tag to your question. For some first aid, I recommend to read its tag-wiki first. That should get you started. If you're still stuck, please edit your question and describe what you've tried and where you're stuck, so we will see if we can help. If you solved it, please answer your question and let us know what exactly you did. Thanks a lot!

comment How do I use SD directiory
I cannot directory either :) How you walk directories very much depends on the app used. Not all of them give you direct access to the file system, but rely on the media library. If you place a media file on the SDCard, the media scanner should pick it up and update that library automatically. Maybe you could edit your question and add some more details, step by step, what you are trying? Then we might be able to give better advise.

comment Recording phone screen and playing the video file
What you call a "script" here actually is an ADB command that cannot work: adb shell just invokes a shell, without further parameters an interactive one. All you pass to it should be run on the device. But you didn't pass a command, but just a file name. So what shall be achieved here? Copying the file to your computer to play it there, or have the video played on the device?

Sorry, no offense meant! I should take more care for my phrasing... For references, you might check these posts, by the way.

comment Nexus 5 “Ok Google” voice output in a non-English US language
You doubt that...so yes? So what, yes or no? :) And could you please explain what that has to do with a proxy? To my knowledge, that's just bound to the system language, not to the location.

It's not "Google.com and other websites" refusing requests from, but your device refusing to connect TO: it cannot find a valid SSL certificate, as their validity dates are not matching your device date/time. So it assumes security is not granted, and refuses to connect to those "insecure sites".

If you go to Settings→Apps, select the "All" tab, scroll to the apps in question, and open their entry: Does it have a button to disable them? If not, it might be labeled "uninstall updates", and should be renamed "Disable" after you did that. With some luck, it's not grayed out then, here's the "push sequence": "Delete Cache", "Clear Data", "Disable". Done. If it is grayed out, all that's left is root and some "Bloatware remover", as indicated by Lucas' answer.

Glad to read you've managed to solve the issue! To indicate it's solved, mind to "accept" the answer by ticking the check-mark next to it? Only the OP (you) can do that :)

comment unable to connect i9100 in cwm recovery mode
The device does not show "mounted" with ADB. You can see whether it is connected using adb devices. You can explore it via adb shell at the command line. For details on that, please see our adb tag-wiki and command-line tag-wiki – a complete excurse on command-line usage and ADB would be a bit out of scope here, but those wikis hold some first-aid and links to further information.
