Whatsapp on SD card

I mounted my SD card (fat32 formatted). Then I installed Whatsapp on Aqua Fish

How do I move/install Whatsapp on the external SD card? ES File Explorer or Amaze File Manager doesn't even show the external SD card. Also n Windows I can't see the installed Whatsapp folder.

I searched some previous threads. Is there any simpler, non-geek way to do so without using tons of commands in the terminal.

just to clarofy, the limitation comes from whatsapp itself: https://www.whatsapp.com/faq/en/android/21068307

To access the Whatsapp-Folder from Windows go to the folder "android_storage" which resides in ypur home directory (should be first folder opened when connected to Windows )

You cannot move whatsapp to sdcard. Anyway, to access sdcard from ES, go to the root location, this one - "/" and navigate to "/media/sdcard/". If you've mounted more than one sdcards in phone before, you'll see a number of folders there, open those and your memory card is at your disposal.
