In your post about using the sd card as internal memory, it was stated that everything could be transferred excluding applications. Then later it was stated that apps could be downloaded on the card .
Do all apps have to be redownloaded on the card or just transferred to it ?

    Yes. You can transfer files but not applications and you can also download apps on the memory card after you have changed your main storage to Sdcard via the storage phone settings.

My A20 has no ( storage) listed separately but is included in Device care . When I go to Device Care>Storage there is no option to change the storage, it just gives the option to delete…. Nothing I have found in A20 shows how to set to save to my memory card. ???

    Remove the SDcard and insert it again on your Samsung A20, on your phone, and then you should see a notification appear on your phone. Tap on the Set SDcard notification and follow the screen instruction and set it as default SDcard storage.
