How to enable developer options Android Devices (USB DEBUGGING)

Android Studio not detecting Device (Nexus 7, Galaxy Tab, etc)

If Android Studio is not detecting your device, it may be because you have not enabled usb debugging in Developer options.

You may then ask yourself, where are the developer options for android (especially if you're used to older versions of Android like I was)?

  1. On the device itself... to enable Developer options in Android go into Settings
  2. Then select About device
  3. Then tap on the build number area 7 or so times
  4. This unlocks a new tab in settings called Developer Options
  5. Go into developer options, scroll through until you see USB Debugging
  6. Tap to turn on USB Debugging

Android Studio should then see the device (a reboot of Android studio is not usually required, but go for it if you don't).

IF you still don't see the device in Android Studio... There are a few other things to consider that I will write about in separate posts.

- enjoy
