I use a galaxy a21s and I bought an SD card to transfer apps to in order to create more space on my phone. When I go to settings, then apps, then I select the app i want to store on the SD card, I do not get a change option. If anyone sees this, please help me with this.

After you select the app, you must also click "storage". Then the option will be available.

Weird. Try going into developer options and select "force allow apps onto external" and see if that changes anything. And have you checked other apps, is it the same for all of them?

Unless the apps are compiled to allow SD card storage (which few developers do, these days) you are not going to be able to move apps.

iv had the same issue, pointless having an sd slot when the only thing you can move are photos and videos, that you can upload to a cloud server, its very disappointing and un practical tbh
