When starting avd emulator, there is phone device like border around the emulator. How can I start emulator without that frame? It's taking too much screen space.


The following was implemented on a default configuration.

AVD Manager Dialog Box

Open AndroidStudio (AS) AVD Manager, click the "pencil icon" to edit the virtual device settings, uncheck the box next to "Enable Device Frame". Click "

NOTE: you may have to click the "Show Advanced Settings" button and scroll down to Device Frame.
