How to control android from a windows PC
OK, I've done a lot of searching on this and still havent found a solution. Very close here
but it's not working for me.
When I had a windows phone several years ago there was a free download from Microsoft that allowed me to control the phone from my PC connected by USB. This was really nice for things like setting up new e-mail accounts and so on where it's easier to use a real keyboard. I've been trying to find something like this for Android but it seems like there's nothing which seems really bizarre considering Microsoft had this freely available 5+ years ago.
When I use the above Java runtime, I do get a screen image of my T-bolt, but I'm not able to control anything. I am rooted and running ICS. I have run the commands they say to use if keyboard and mouse control don't work to no avail.
Anyone have a solution for this?
Something like AirDroid isn't an option, I want USB (sometimes I want to access at work, and I cannot get my android on corporate wifi)
