    I have downloaded the Android developer kit as a precursor to trying to use adb for push/pull/other actions.

    I also have confirmed that I have the appropriate Moto USB drivers.

    Is there a way to confirm I have adb access?

    Tried going to RUN and entering adb, adb shell (it quickly brought up a dialog box and scrolled through (too fast to read) some words, but then the dialog box went away.

    Any guidance on this is appreciated.

    You're going into it wrong. Open up cmd and type cd *location of tools folder in sdk* Replace the *...* with the place though. Then you can use the adb functions like push/pull/install/etc...

    Thanks Alienware - Dummy me. I forgot the CMD part of the instruction.

    Entered that and changed location to point to tools and entered adb and sure enough there are the adb commands. I guess that answers the question as to whether I am able to use adb.

    Thank you.
