    Today I bought a new phone. GM5 Plus, Marshmallow.

    It was a big update because my other phone was using Jelly Bean and it had 4 gbs of internal storage. So I was saving everything I could to the external storage. That's what I'm used to.

    But... Now that my phone has 32 gbs of internal storage, it saves everything to the internal storage. Screenshots, photos, videos, apps.

    Right now it's okay but I want to be able to change this. I'm like a control freak. If there's something I can't do, I would go crazy - and I'm really obsessed with the SD card issue.

    So, I've checked the storage section in the options but couldn't find anything. Any suggestions?

    On my phone when I install an app, it asks internal, external, or let the system decide. As for the photos, my camera app gives me the option to use internal or external. Same with my sound recorder app. You will probably have to look in the settings of each app that puts files on your storage, they might have the option like mine does.

    Each app controls where it saves files. You need to check the settings in each app to see if it lets you choose where to save things.

    Apps get installed to the internal storage.
