If you have a mobile phone that runs on Android and you have a computer that runs on Windows, then you have no choice but to make sure that the computer has the USB Drivers installed on it or else the USB cable isn’t going to be able to bridge the connection between the computer and device.
The Android operating system can easily get this problem solved by installing the Universal Windows ADB Driver that is available from Koushik Dutta. You probably already know the name as the guy who is behind the ClockworkMod Recovery—the world’s first reliable custom recovery image that also took the world by storm only later to be outshone by Team Win’s TWRP which is an open source custom recovery image developed by many.
The Universal Windows ADB Driver has the USB Drivers on it for the HTC Desire 830 smartphone, and the package is only a small one, so it doesn’t take up a lot of space on the computer like some of the other programs that OEMs prefer you install to get the drivers installed instead. There are a few ways you can get the USB Drivers installed, and it doesn’t matter what way you choose. The method we always prefer is just downloading something light that doesn’t include manufacturers flashing tool program to go with it because it takes up less space on the computer and thus doesn’t hurt the performance.
