I'm assuming you mean adb (Android Debug Bridge). It wouldn't appear in the start menu. It's a command line shell. You have to open a command prompt, navigate to the folder where it is unzipped and execute the shell from there. If you point me to the instructions you are trying to use, I can decipher them for you.
Sometimes the instructions are harder than the procedure.
I should have explained that the article
( How to Install Android Apps to the SD Card by Default & Move Almost Any App to the SD Card - How-To Geek ) tells me to download Google's Android SDK to my computer, I can enable USB debugging on my phone.
the problem is accessing Android SDK Manager on my laptop.
Thanks for you reply, Brian
Did you install java?
Yep, I did that first
And the installation of the SDK completed successfully?
It downloaded to " down loads " in internet explorer, when I try to open it , it tells me to unzip it to a folder of my choice, i think here is where the problem starts I don;t know which folder to use, I've tried a new folder but it doesn't appear on the start menu. thanks for your patience
Unzipping the installation files isn't the actual installation. You would have to browse to the folder where you put the files and run the installation routine.
Welcome aboard, Brian.
Just to let you know, I'm moving this thread to our Android Lounge section.
Thanks Lunatic, Now I'm feeling REALLY stupid! I have found the folder where I put the files, I can open it but I can't figure out how to run the installation routine, if you get fed up with me, just tell me to p*** off!
Thanks again Brian
Don't worry about it, Brian. I'll take a look at the installation files for you. Just so we are clear are you talking about the SDK or the Java files?
