How to format Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ microSD card

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ is the only one of the two new flagship phones to feature a microSD card slot. Combined with 256GB or 512GB of on-board memory, the phone can effectively offer up to 1.5TB of storage, and that should be enough even for the most demanding users. You may never need to reformat the microSD card throughout the Note 10+’s lifetime. Or you might want to format the card on the initial setup just to make sure that everything is clean and works as it should.
