As the Abdroid Lollipop on my Samsung tablet is not much good at managing the machines's SD Card it has been suggested I manage the Card with my Windows 10 PC. How?  apart from removing the Card and using it in a Card Reader? I want to move some apps to the Card.I have connected the two machines with a USB cable and OTG adapter but so far the Samsung does not show up in Windows. What do I need to do?

Can you connect the tablet to your machine with a USB cable?  That's how I manage my Kindle Fire's card.

At the risk of asking a silly question, have you switched on the tablet before you try communicating with it from the computer ?

I am going to be away until about the 22nd October. Time on-line will be reduced and my internet access may be limited. PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal !

The "on the go adaptor may" be the problem - generally to connect a tablet to a PC you only need a normal USB data cable - presumably with a micro USB connector at the tablet end.

 

I am not sure that you can move apps to the SD card (I have not used an Android later than KitKat), but I am reasonably sure that if you can then it will be by using the tablet OS & not just by moving files using a PC.

 

You may also want to consider that there are many file manager apps available for Android.
