    I have a Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2016). I want to move files to the SD card to free up internal memory. I tried using the Samsung Simulator to get the steps needed to transfer files. When it gets to the step to click "More Options", a window saying that briefly appears but nothing happens when I press it - it just goes away.

    Anyone know why this is happening?

    Are you trying this while the tablet is hooked up to a PC with a USB cable?

    Or are you doing this just on the tablet?

    I'm not exactly sure what you need the simulator for.

    I used the simulator because it walked me through the steps for moving files from internal storage to another location (in my case the SD card). I was just doing it on the tablet.

    Welcome to Android Central! Why not just use the My Files file manager to move the files? Or any good 3rd party file manager app like Total Commander, Files by Google, or Solid Explorer?

    I am not familiar with those programs orcapps. Is the My Files manager on the tablet? Will these apps allow me to move the files to my SD card?

    Look for my files app by Samsung in your app drawer

    Sorry, but do you mean app store?

    The App Drawer is your list of all installed apps. Tap the icon in the bottom row that looks like a circle (or square) with a grid of dots in it. Now look in the App Drawer for My Files. Since you have a Samsung device, My Files might be in the Samsung folder in the App Drawer.
