Enable USB Debugging on Android Device
During the Android application programming process you want to connect your Android device to the computer, but Android Studio tools do not recognize the existence of the device.
Make sure your Android device has USB Debugging enabled. Depending on the Android version you are using, here are the instructions for each version:
Android 4.2 --> 7.1.2
- Settings > About Device > Software Info > Build Number
- Settings > About Phone > Build Number
Android >= 8.0

- Settings > System > About Phone > Build number

Return to the "Settings" menu, and search for "Developer Options", then turn on the "USB Debugging" function:
