In My previous article Install ADB (Android Debug Bridge) in Windows  and Some Useful Commands for ADB in Windows . If you think you don’t understand command or whatever try these tool. This is Full GUI form of ADB command tool.

 If you’re not in love with the command line, though, QtADB brings ADB’s file management, app installation, and more to a friendly GUI.

QTADB use in Android Forensics.


Whether you’re tweaking a few system files on your phone or trying to root it, sometimes you have no other choice but to run some commands in an ADB shell. The command line can be intimidating, though, not to mention slow and arduous if you haven’t beefed up your command line ninja skills. If you just need to perform a couple quick tasks, qtADB makes the process easy by bringing tons of ADB’s most common uses—from file management to app installation to backups—to a friendly desktop program. It even contains a built-in ADB shell if you find you need to run a manual command or two. You can simply connect your phone to pc with Qtadb.
