ADB stands for Android Debugging Bridge. This driver is mandatory to connect the android devices in USB debugging mode.

Note

Remove old versions of any ADB driver that are already installed in your computer before installing the new drivers for error-free installation. You can do this in the device manager. Right-click the driver that you want to uninstall and click uninstall.

Installation Instructions for ADB driver

After downloading the driver, extract it to a location that is easily accessible. For convenience, I’m extracting the drivers to my desktop. Now you have to install it as a legacy hardware. Go to your Device Manager by right-clicking your my computer icon and click ‘Manage’. From that select device manager from the left menu. In device manager click your computer name at the top and select add legacy hardware from the action menu in the menu bar.

Nice post. I learn something more challenging on different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store. I’d prefer to use some with the content on my blog whether you don’t mind. Naturally, I’ll give you a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.
