    Once I've moved a bunch of stuff to the SD card what if I want to check what is on that SD card? When I go to settings->storage->SD card all it allows me to do is 'format' or 'unmount' the card. But I want to see what's on that card. I can't see any way to do this.

    Can someone help?

    Go to storage, then internal storage then explore. Then hit My Files. Then you should see the SD card. There's probably an easier way but that's how I found it.

    Get a file manager app like ES File Explorer Manager, Astro File Manager and you will be able to see files on device and storage card.

    Are you saying that when you open My Files, there is no option to view the SD card? If so, then go to Settings>Storage. Does it show that an SD card is inserted there?

    I'm not sure what you mean about putting stuff in it and then uninstalling off your homescreen. The homescreen shows app shortcut icons, and if you remove a shortcut from the homescreen, it doesn't uninstall the app from the phone.

    Finally, something that I think I can help with. I think that what people want to be able to do is to see the files stored on the memory card, using... say, Windows Explorer. All Galaxy models have to be placed into Developer Mode first, and find the "USB Debugging" switch. Turn that feature on. When you plug the phone into the computer via a USB Cable, you will be presented with the option to place it in "Charging", MTP (Media Transfer Protocol), PTP (Picture Trandfer Protocol), RNDIS (USB Ethernet), Audio Source, or Midi. Select the MTP option. It might ask you when you plug it in.

    My Galaxy S4 worked this way, my Galaxy S5 worked this way, and my Galaxy S7 worked this way - until the latest software update. I'm still working around minor and major annoyances and seem to have lost the ability to easily set it so that my computer can see the files contained on the SD card.

    I don't have an option for "Internal Storage" on my GN4. What other option is there?

    Step one: Plug your Android into your laptop.
    It will link up, and then files on your Android will appear as if they are on your laptop. You have to go to the Start Menu and then click on the 3 horizontal lines in the upper left corner. Click on the "File Explorer" option. You should see a lot of options, go to "This PC".

    For me, my Android shows up as "Galaxy Tab A (2016)". Below it is "Card". This is your your SD card on your Android.

    Right Click on "Card". Then, "New Folder". Create a new folder called, "Road Music" or anything else. This is what I am using to store music files downloaded from Youtube for when I'm on the road.

    At this point, you have used your laptop to create a new file on your Android.

    Go to "My Files" on your Android. For me, "Recent Files" is what shows up. Where is the SD card though? No where. Press Search.

    The File you created through your laptop, "Road Music" should be there.

    You haven't added any music yet, so your file should be empty. But, at the top left, it should say, SD card > Road Music

    Click on SD card.

    Now you know what's specifically in your SD card.

    This is somewhat convoluted, but it does work.

    As you can tell at this point, you were able to look at whatever was on your SD card when you went to "My Files" on your Android. However, it doesn't keep anything separate, your SD card files are all mixed in with your usual Android files.
