    I have a Samsung Galaxy S9+ and I was wondering if there happens to be a fast and simple way to transfer my downloaded apps from my internal storage to my external storage (sd card) all at one time??

    No, that's not possible. Incidentally, these days, you will find few apps can be moved to SD card

    I have absolutely NO problems moving any/all of my apps on my device. Maybe you have a different device or you didn't check to force allow apps on external in Developer Options.

    I have an S10. Personally, I never move or try to move apps to SD cards which are slow and unreliable.

    You cant transfer apps to sd card , Samsung doesn't allow that any more . Sd card can longer be adaptable storage only portable.

    I saw this article about that feature: https://www.sammobile.com/news/how-t...d-on-galaxy-s9. Interesting, I thought Samsung had disabled Adoptable Storage on all of its phones, and the only way you could use it was through a set of ADB commands. Are the apps actually installing completely on the SD card, or is it just putting a chunk of the app's data on the card, while a significant component of it still has to reside in Internal Storage? That article says that some part of the app will still be on Internal Storage, which makes this sound more like the older "Move to SD" feature.

    I highly dont recommend that , it can be irreversible

    Yeah, one should always exercise caution with Developer Options -- there's a reason why a lot of those options aren't mainstream ones.

    To move more than one app at a time tap the menu button in the top right corner and choose Multi-select Now tap all the apps you want to move, hit the menu button again, and choose either Link to SD card or Move to SD card.
