- Once your device is connected, type the following command into the command prompt and press Enter: adb devices
- You should see a list of all the devices that are connected to your computer. Find your Android device in the list and note the number that is next to it. This is your device ID.
- Next, type the following command into the command prompt and replace “DeviceID” with your actual device ID: adb -s DeviceID pull /sdcard/filename.apk C:\filename.apk
This will extract the APK file from your Android device and save it to your computer. You can then find the extracted APK file in the location that you specified.
