• I'm on Windows 10.
  • Android studio version 2.3.3

How can I launch the AVD Manager with-out opening the Android Studio and creating a project ?

I remember it was possible for earlier version of Android Studio. I found the avdmanager.bat file in Android\Sdk\tools\bin but running it won't launch the avdmanger UI that we get from the Android Studio.

Anyone here faced the same issue and found a way to launch AVD manager from command line ?


Add the path first


Your path may be different update accordingly

An then run the cmd

emulator -avd "avd_name"

Reference Android developers launch avd from cmd line

    You may also wish to mention that the user can add the directory path variable, or perfoming this command in \sdk\tools folder – xavier_fakerat Sep 9 '17 at 13:29

    @Rajendran Thanks for the answer. But this is not what I'm looking for I want to launch the AVD manager UI not the emulator. – 3lokh Sep 10 '17 at 9:18
  • The thing that you are asking is impossible now bcuz those cmds are depricated and removed in latest version. – Rajendran Nadar Sep 10 '17 at 15:14
