How to open “file explorer” in Android studio

Programmer algorithm practice must read, common Java API skills to share>>>


In the process of Android application development and debugging, we often need to check the current application’s file storage in the simulator, and then we need to use the file explorer

Next, Jack’s robot will share with his friends the methods of opening “file explorer” in eclipse ADT and Android studio respectively

Open “file explorer” in eclipse ADT

Directly find the ADT menu and click “window” – & gt“ Show View”->“ Other…”。

In the pop-up “show view” window, select “Android” – & gt“ File explorer

Open “file explorer” in Android studio

In Android studio, you can’t open “file explorer” directly, but you need to open DDMS first (Android device monitor in Android studio)

Then, in the menu of DDMS window, find “window” – & gt“ Show View”。

You can also find “file explorer” in the show view window

–Little discovery–

When you open DDMS in Android studio, when you open “file explorer” in eclipse ADT again, a DDMS warning window will pop up

According to the prompt, you can know that when a DDMS is opened, the debug port number will be occupied, which will cause the “file explorer” cannot be opened in ADT

From this, we can see that “file explorer” in ADT is actually a module in DDMS, which can be directly displayed separately in ADT interface, while Android studio can only be displayed in DDMS (at present, I’m not sure if there are other methods to directly display “file explorer” in Android studio window)
