Questions:

I want to know whether there is a method to access local files (say text files, web pages) of the filesystem in Android emulator.

I’m using Ubuntu 10.04 for Android development.

How to&Answers:

You can use the adb command which comes in the tools dir of the SDK:

adb shell

It will give you a command line prompt where you can browse and access the filesystem. Or you can extract the files you want:

adb pull /sdcard/the_file_you_want.txt

Also, if you use eclipse with the ADT, there’s a view to browse the file system (Window->Show View->Other… and choose Android->File Explorer)

Answer:

In Android Studio 3.0 and later do this:

View > Tool Windows > Device File Explorer

Answer:

In addition to the accepted answer, if you are using Android Studio you can

  1. invoke Android Device Monitor,
  2. select the device in the Devices tab on the left,
  3. select File Explorer tab on the right,
  4. navigate to the file you want, and
  5. click the Pull a file from the device button to save it to your local file system

Update!
You can access the Android filesystem via Android Device Monitor. In Android Studio go to Tools >> Android >> Android Device Monitor.

Note that you can run your app in the simulator while using the Android Device Monitor. But you cannot debug you app while using the Android Device Monitor.

Answer:

In Android Studio 3.5.3, the Device File Explorer can be found in View -> Tool Windows.

It can also be opened using the vertical tabs on the right-hand side of the main window.
