[Guide] How to Install ADB on Windows -

Android Debug Bridgethe ADB, is a tool that works from command line and which is part of the Android SDK package. (It is also available separately) It is used to send commands to Android phones and tablets when connected to a PC via USB cable.

ADB was designed specifically for android developers, but there are many useful things that, as a regular consumer, you could do with ADB. For example, you can sideload applications, root your phone, transfer files between your phone and computer, create backups, screen record, and uninstall system apps on Android.

How to install ADB on Windows

1. Download Platform Tools for Windows. (You can also download it for Mac or Linux, from the same web page.)

2. Extract the zip file after downloading. It may be useful to save it in the “C:” drive or in the Home folder (in Linux) to make it easier to find.

3. Open the folder platformtools and hold down the Shift key while right-clicking on the folder.

4. Choose the option "Open PowerShell window here." or "Open Command Prompt".

After completing these steps, ADB is set up on your computer. The next step is to enable USB debugging on your phone.

Enable USB Debugging on Android

Before using the ADB commands it is essential to activate USB debugging on the Android phone, without which the connection will not be possible. We have already written a detailed guide at the following link:

How to Enable USB Debugging on Android

Try ADB commands

To determine if the connection between your phone and computer is working, try ADB by performing the same steps to open the command prompt above.

1. Connect the phone to the PC

2. Type adb devices in the command window and press Submit.

3. If your device appears, you have successfully connected.

What to do if ADB doesn't work?

If your phone doesn't see “Allow USB Debugging” after you've set everything up, don't panic. The fix can be as simple as rebooting the phone or changing the USB options for file transfer.

If the problem persists, try running the ADB test. If you get a scary looking red text saying “ADB is not recognized as an internal or external command…” try the following steps.

1. Go to the Oracle website.

2. Scroll down to find links for all available Java SE download options.

3. Select “dk12.0.1_windowsx64_bin.exe” or newer version.

4. Download JavaSE.

5. Double click on the installer

6. After the Java installation is complete, right-click the My Computer icon in Windows Explorer.

7. Select "Properties"

8. In the window that opens, select Advanced system settings.

9. Click on the "Environmental Variables" button.

10. Select the path listed in the box at the bottom of the window and click Modification.

11. Click on “Shop by Department”And navigate to the folder where the platform tools folder was previously saved.

12. Select the folder, platform tools and click OK.

13. Now, in Windows Explorer, go back to the platform-tools folder and open the command prompt as you did at the beginning.

14. At the command prompt, type adb devices. Your device should appear now.

If your device is “unauthorized”, please check your phone. The USB debugging box should now be visible. Allow your computer to access your phone and you will be ready for ADB use
