    Browse to a folder or file in Android from the windows command line.

    By example :
    How can I write a link to an android folder in my device Samsung S4

    This seems to be in the structure :

    Equipo\My name (Ga\Phone\CallRecordings

    I would like to launch that folder with a bat file from Windows 7-64

    Best Regards

    I'm not sure I entirely understand the nature of your question. But to navigate to directories on your phone from the command line (aside from the sdcard), requires root and adb shell.

    Where can I get links about root and adb shell ?

    For root, you can ask in whichever root subforum describes your device here:

    Samsung Galaxy S4 - Android Forums

    Last I knew, Towelroot was working on the S4 but I'm not sure if that's still the case or not as firmware updates tend to patch root exploits. I've not kept up on this phone but the good folks over in those forums should be able to answer your query.

    ADB is explained here:

    Android Debug Bridge | Android Developers

    It is a function of the Android SDK. If you are not interested in the entire sdk and all the development tools, API's, etc that are associated with that, you can look into a condensed version such as our forum's Mini-SDK which is very lean and provides fastboot and adb function only.

    ADB access is historically gained in one of two ways once the SDK package of your choice has been installed (along with adb/fastboot drivers if Windows). One is to run it from within a custom recovery, if one is available for your device. The other is to enable developer options in your phone's settings:

    Within developer options then, you can enable 'usb debugging' which is required to use ADB from a normally booted state.

    Thanks a lot.
    I'll take a look and keep the links.
