  • What device? Some devices can take in-phone screenshot before it's officially supported in Android. PS: I've removed the link since it is broken. – Lie Ryan Jun 28 '12 at 10:55

    of course it's not your iPhone, this is an Android website. What's your device model? – Lie Ryan Jun 28 '12 at 11:32
  • @Lie Ryan Micromax A 50 – Suhail Gupta Jun 28 '12 at 11:34

Have you installed the USB driver? You need to install the USB driver to use development tools in Windows, they have to be downloaded and installed separately. For your device Micromax A50, try the following guide.

    @SuhailGupta: you need the device-specific USB driver; the USB driver that comes with SDK Manager is only for Nexus devices except Galaxy Nexus (i.e. ADP1 / T-Mobile G1, ADP2 / Google Ion / T-Mobile myTouch 3G, Verizon Droid, Nexus One, Nexus S). – Lie Ryan Jun 28 '12 at 13:19
  • I unzipped the .rar file given in the guide but couldn't find Device Manager . Is there something i am missing ? Contents of Unzipped Folder . My SDK Manager – Suhail Gupta Jun 29 '12 at 9:20
  • @SuhailGupta: the Device Manager is Windows control panel tools, see computerhope.com/issues/ch000833.htm – Lie Ryan Jun 30 '12 at 0:29
