Please be specific, which option did you see on your device. You can set your SDcard as your default setting following the instruction above. However, if that doesn't work for you, then you can use another method. Insert your SDcard on your phone and moves all your heavy files to the SDcard in other to create more space on your Samsung A22 device.
