    You have to open a command promt and manually navigate to the sdk tools directory.

    Example for me

    cd /android/sdk/tools

    Are you sure you are manually directing to the correct path.

    Here's alittle clearer example. I extracted the sdk to the root of my C drive which is C:\

    So my full directory is C:\android\sdk\tools

    So in command prompt i could do

    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. cd c:\
    3. cd android
    4. cd sdk
    5. cd tools
    6.  
    or
    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. cd /android/sdk/tools
    3.  
    You can also copy the file path to the tools folder from the address bar and "cd" to it.

    *Remeber this is an example about where i extracted mine and how to access it. Your file path my be different.*

    i am copying the file path right from the folder path and it still says it is not recognized as an internal or external command. why cant i just use the setup sdk app.

    Because adb was designed to be run from a command line interface (as far as i know.)

    Are you placeing cd in front of the file path?

    cd filepathhere
