There are several ways for doing this:

  • See this video on YouTube, if your phone can support this method; Or,

  • See this video to use default file manager to change the storage; Or,

  • Use file managers like ES File Explorer File Manager. When you try to download a file, it shows you the pop up menu and then you can choose the path for storing the files; Or,

  • Use Google Chrome Browser. In Chrome, tap the tools drop-down bar in the top right corner → tap Settings → tap Show advanced settings, and enter the file path you want where the file should download.

    In other browsers the process is very similar.


Here is an easy way:

  1. Open the Camera app.
  2. Swipe on the middle of the screen from the left to the right. This may take a couple of tries so be persistent.
  3. This gives a half-moon shaped menu on the left. Slide this menu counter clockwise to the icon of an sd card. Tap on this.
  4. Choose Phone or SD card for the storage location.
