Re: Help Wanted With The Command Prompt On Windows

No, but to root the phone you would use an exe file running on a pC. The exe file will be in some folder on the pC, not on the android device – not sure how or if you can access the Android via command prompt as unlike other usb devices, I don’t think they’re assigned a normal drive letter (at least my Samsung j120 isn’t when I connect it)

This is what I tried to imply before.

However if our friend is using an android phone and wants to access throuth the cmd I don’t really know what he wants to achieve as the programs on an android aren’t exe files.

Kind regards,

Gene is correct.  Most times, for things like rooting software, it's not installed and its location is not added to the system PATH variable.  You need to be sitting in the folder/directory where that software is located, or you must fully qualify the path to the exe file.

It's usually much, much easier to change directory (and the command is CD) to the location where the thing you're trying to run is resident.  If you don't and its folder is not part of system path, you will get precisely the error message mentioned at the outset.
