After a couple of days of digging, I found the solution to this issue. I opened up Device Manager.

By looking at the inf file, you can find that it tells to use the WinUSB driver. So there is a better solution than disabling driver signature enforcement, you can use the tool Zadig (http://zadig.akeo.ie/).

Try the 15-seconds ADB/drivers all-in-one installer. You could also install the Samsung drivers rather than conventional OnePlus drivers. I installed these drivers and I've had mine working since the upgrade. You could also try following this guide on how to set it up.

In theory, there is not a way to access your phone's memory card with a drive letter, because, as you said, Android now connects it as an MTP device, and not as a Mass Storage device. But, there are two solutions: Root phone and get a "Mass Storage" enabler application that will work on your phone. Without rooting phone: as long as both the computer are on ...

.exe Files are Windows binaries (i.e. executable files/applications/programms) that can not be run natively on a Android system. I am sure the Play Store (or the alternatives of the Play Store) will have an equivalent app to the .exe file you are trying to run.

I have exactly the same device as you, down to the Android version and build number. I discovered that it was necessary to change my USB transfer mode. You can do this on the Nexus 7 by going to Settings > Storage, clicking on the strange menu icon in the top right hand corner and selecting "USB computer connection". I then changed the storage mode to "...

I found the solution myself: Windows 10 somehow does not want to install the driver, as it can not verify the manufacturer. So the driver from Sony Developer's site works just fine. After deactivating the Windows driver signature check everything works fine. To deactivate proceed like this: (taken from HERE) Press Win + X then U then Shift + R ...

I had the same problem with Kindle Fire Utility, and I actually figured this out. The install_drivers.bat replaces the driver, which is not what you want! You need both drivers in place, the regular Amazon Kindle one, and the ADB driver. To get it to work: Uninstall the Android ADB driver in Device Manager (right click to do this) In Device Manager, right ...

My method is based on the answer suggesting WebDAV. It could be replicated by an FTP, Samba or other networked file server. Essentially you start a WebDAV server on your android device, and mount it as a network drive. Your phone's IP must be visible to the computer you want to browse the files on. Generally this means you must be on the same local ...

The easiest way to get this driver is from the samsung website. There is a link to a download that installs only the driver (none of the bloat). See https://stackoverflow.com/a/11851697/1427165 for more details.

This app allows you to share your clipboard between multiple Android devices and your Windows PC: Copy on one device, and it appears in the clipboard of all others.

Chor WaiChun mentioned this on a locked question you posted on StackOverflow: I've seen somewhere stated that this behaviour is because both android and linux run on same kernel, and same situation goes to developing android on mac. Both OS runs in very similar OS kernel with Android, that is why they don't need any drivers. These are just something ...

Unfortunately, it's a big problem. Google apparently decided to go MTP only route since it does not require unmounting the storage from the Android side when you connect it to your computer. So: You cannot assign a drive letter to an MTP device. Here's my answer on superuser.com explaining why. There is a program named Alt Mounter that supposely solves this ...

This is really a continuation of @Zuul's answer, to cover the DNS settings in Android 4.0+ (ICS), which is a little harder to find IMO. AFAIK Zuul's answer covers Android <2.3 settings. From the Android side (Android 4.0+ ICS) Settings WiFi (click on word "WiFi", not ON/OFF switch) Press and hold (long tap) your wireless network until dialog pops up ...

You (or someone else) probably accidentally click this banner on the main screen. And "Accept" the offer. (Note: this dialog may also pop-up on reboot) - OR - Avast pushed the installation silently (which I still doubt since it didn't happen on my case). Avast gets the Google accounts saved on the Chrome, and it's possible for them to offer ...

Okay I finally found something which helped me. The Media Feature Pack for Windows 10 N & KN (all editions) alias KB-3010081 is for the first version of Windows 10. But for the Windows 10 with the big update we had a few time ago, there is an update which supersedes the KB-3010081. This is the KB-3099229 : https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/...

Just pulling all files via adb to a WIndows computer has multiple problems: Android/Linux allows multiple files in one directory that just differ in their case.
