JUMP TO SOLUTION

When trying to move files/folders to my external MicroSD card, I get a message saying I need to get access rights to the card.   Anyone know how to get access to the card?

For Android 9 try Settings->Apps->3 dot menu then App Permissions->select the app that you're using for moving the files and go to App Settings->Permissions and turn on the Storage slider

Billed, 

I think I labeled it wrong. My old brain is broken😱. 

"Grant tab a 10.5 access rights"

There are 3 steps to grant the permission. I can't find them anywhere.   I'm having the same problem on my note 8. It's running Android 9. I did your instructions to no avail. 

I'm using File Manager. Should I use My Files instead?

@Tweezyman , lets try this then

To enable Developer Options, open the Settings screen, scroll down to the bottom, and tap About phone or About tablet. Scroll down to the bottom of the About screen and find the Build number. Tap the Build number field seven times to enable Developer Options.

 

In developer options, usually under the heading of Apps, turn on "Force allow apps on External"

 

My recollection is that the included file manager, My Files, did not ask for permission but an add on app like ES File Explorer did the first time I access the microsd

I'm beginning to feel like a pea brain. All I want to do is move files/folders to my external microsd card. Internal card is 97% full

 

I can't figure out how to do it on ES File Explorer (gave me access) and nothing else works. I want to keep the files with my phone, not on my personal cloud (Seagate).

Very frustrating 😤

I tried "File Manager: Free and easy and it worked. But it's VERY cumbersome.

 

Just to show you how frustrating this all this is... I made a new folder in free & easy and now I can't find it.

 

This makes me want to start again. It's been 30 years. 

 

 

I really do appreciate you taking the time to help me. If you can figure this out whole brubaha out it would be awesome. I'm gonna light me a and keep on going through everything I can think of.

 

You know, the maximum frustration is that I have a degree in Electro-mechanical Robotics. I've written huge operations software to run different kinds of robots, and I can't figure my stinky phone out. 🥳
