ADB Driver Windows 10Universal ADB Driver Download for Windows - ADB stands for Android Debug Bridge. ADB comes as part of the standard SDK Android SDK, which you can download at the end of this paper. Basically, the ADB provides terminal-based interface to interact with the file system on your phone. Because Android is based on Linux, the command-line is the only way to get and manipulate the root access.
Actually this can be done directly on the Android device itself using a terminal emulator, but surely you will find it hard to execute complex commands on the small screen. ADB could form a bridge between your Android device and your computer.
ADB function to execute commands to interact at Android, such as the manipulation of root access, Phone data access, file manipulation ex; copy, paste, delete, etc.

How to Install ADB Driver on Windows 7 and windows 10
Step 1: Install the Android SDK
The first step is to download the SDK. Use the link provided at the end of this article and download the latest version of the Android SDK. There are versions available for Microsoft Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. For Windows OS, available for both the installer and the zip file. You do not have to use the installer as the installation media. If you choose to use zip files, just extract the zip file to a location on your computer.
Step 2: Download Tools Platform SDK
Earlier, ADB sign in the SDK by default in the sub-folder ƒ_ ~ toolƒ_T but now moved to a sub-folder-toolsƒ_T ƒ_ ~ platform in the SDK package. Fortunately, it is fairly easy to overcome:
Sign in to the SDK folder and open SDK Manager. When it is opened for the first time, you will see a window to select packages to be installed. Check the first option is ƒ_ ~ Android Platform SDK-toolsƒ_T. For now uncheck all other packages. You can check the package by clicking the package name and then select the radio button Accept / Reject.
Now just click ƒ_ ~ Installƒ_T and wait for it to finish. Once this process is completed, will form ƒ_ folder ~ platform-toolsƒ_T in your SDK folder. That folder will include ADB and all its dependencies.
Step 3: Setting the Path variable
Now that you have installed the ADB but when you want to run the command ADB, ¶ÿ you are required to use the full path of the ADB command (C: \ android-SDK-windows \ platform-tools \ adb) or to a subfolder platform-tools directory of the SDK folder you, and this can be very troublesome. To make ADB is easily accessible from anywhere in the command line, we will add its path to the PATH environment variables. This method applies to Windows users only. If you are a Linux or Mac user, add PATH on your system using the method appropriate to your operating system.
If you do not have experience in editing environment variables, you can create a System Restore in advance so that you can restore the system back later if there is a fault. In ƒ_ ~ System Propertiesƒ_T window, click Advanced System Settingsƒ_T ƒ_ ~ button on the tab ƒ_ ~ Advancedƒ_T.
Search ƒ_ ~ Pathƒ_T in part ƒ_ ~ System variablesƒ_T and double-click it to edit it. Make sure NOT to delete existing entries in ƒ_ ~ variable valueƒ_T. Simply add the following string at the end of the entry, including a semicolon:
; C:\android-sdk-windows\tools; c:\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools
If earlier you extract the contents of the SDK into another directory, use the directory to your PATH variable.
After you add PATH, your computer will require a reboot.
Step 4: Installing the USB driver
Lastly, you need to install the USB drivers. You may not need to do this step, depending on your Android device. If you are using a device that bundling with the Android operating system such as the Nexus One, this step will be necessary.
* The first step is to download the USB drivers. To do this, open the SDK Manager from the SDK folder and click on ƒ_ ~ Available packagesƒ_T left.
* Expand ƒ_ ~ Third party Add-onsƒ_T followed ƒ_ ~ Google Inc. add-onsƒ_T and check ƒ_ ~ Google Usb Driver packageƒ_T,
* Click ƒ_ ~ Install Selectedƒ_T and in the window that appears, click ƒ_ ~ Acceptƒ_T followed by the ƒ_ ~ Installƒ_T. Wait a USB driver downloaded and installed the Android SDK.
* Drivers for both 32 bit and 64 bit systems will now be present in the SDK folder under ƒ_ ~ \ x86 usb_driverƒ_T and ƒ_ ~ usb_driver \ x64ƒ_ý each sub-folder.
Now the USB driver has been downloaded, you can install it onto your computer as follows :
* On an Android device, go to the home screen, press Menu, select Settings, select Applications> Develompment, and turn on USB Debugging.
* Now connect your device to a PC via USB. Installing new hardware will begin, and will begin searching for the driver.
* Manually select the driver to the appropriate folder for your operating system and let the installation process runs.
* Once the driver is installed, you can verify that the installation was successful by opening the Device Manager on your computer. Your mobile phone will be displayed under ƒ_ ~ ADB Interfaceƒ_T,
How to Use ADB
At this point, it means setting ADB has been completed. Now you can use ADB to manipulate your Android device in any way. On Windows, the way to do this is by using the command prompt. To ensure adb has been setting correctly, run the command prompt and type the ƒ_ ~ adb devicesƒ_T and press enter. On your connected device will be displayed with the serial number.
