Universal ADB Drivers is a driver package that will enable all modern Windows OS desktop and laptop PCs to recognize the presence of USB-connected Android devices and establish a streamlined file-sharing experience by mounting the portable storage drive. Inside this small package is a set of generic drivers that are optimized by the large Android development community to enable full-bandwidth connection to Android devices and their portable storage drivers.

After installation of this driver pack, users will be able to gain direct access to phone storage, such as photos and videos, directly from the Windows Explorer or any other PC file manager.

ADB Drivers come in a small installation package that weighs in a bit under 20MB in size, thus enabling anyone to easily and quickly download and install it on their home, school, or work PC. After an ordinary and uneventful installation, no consumer-facing app will be installed. Instead, your Windows system will be expanded with a new set of drivers that will correctly recognize an Android device when you connect it via a USB cable. Without such driver support, your PC would not be able to detect Android devices and simple direct file transfer would be impossible.

As the name of this package implies, Universal ADB Drivers do not discriminate against any Android product brand. It supports them all because the entire procedure of managing  USB communication and file sharing is handled by the underlying Windows OS and Android OS services, and not by any consumer-facing customizations done by various Android device manufacturers.

Because of its usefulness, anyone who owns an Android device or comes in contact with it for work purposes is highly recommended to install this driver package. In just seconds, Windows PCs of all forms and sizes can become ready to establish a wired USB connection with Android devices and start sharing files between them. Universal ADB Drivers is 100% FREE and is optimized for use on all versions of Windows OS, starting with Windows XP and newer.
