Why it is not possible to install apps on an SD card on a Win 8.1 tablet? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Why it is not possible to install apps on an SD card on a Win 8.1 tablet? If it is possible to install apps on SD card in Windows phone 8.1, why is it not possible on Windows 8.1? What sort of design philosophy you follow that gives better features on a mobile version of the OS but not on the parent OS? Kindly explain if you can!

  • Hello,

    I'd ask in the Windows 8.1 forum on Microsoft Community.

    As the Microsoft Community is on a different platform, we cannot move the question for you.
