How to install Android Debug Bridge on Microsoft Windows
- Download the ADB Driver ZIP file for Windows
- Extract the ZIP file contents to an easily accessible folder (for example, C:\adb)
- Open Windows Explorer and see where the contents of this ZIP file have been extracted.
- Then, from the directory of this ADB binary, open the command prompt. This can be done by clicking the "Open command prompt here" option and holding Shift and Right-Click in the folder. (See "PowerShell," instead of "prompt command," for some Windows 10 users.)
- Connect your smartphone or tablet using USB cable to your computer. Change to "Transfer file(MTP)" mode in USB mode. Some OEMs may need this or not, but it is best to keep it in this mode for general compatibility
- To launch the ADB daemon enter the following command n the Command Prompt window: adb devices
- A prompt to allow or deny USB debugging access should appear on your phone's screen. Obviously, when prompted you want to give USB Debugging access (and tap the check box if you never want this prompt again).
- Finally, re-enter the step # 6 command. If all was successful, you should now view the serial number of your device in the command prompt. Yay! Yay! Yay! Now on your device you can execute any ADB command! Start now modding your phone with our extensive tutorial list!
