The HTC One A9s smartphone is just another one of HTC’s devices that runs on a version of the Android operating system. If you ever want to connect the Android operating system to a computer that runs on Windows, the computer needs to have the valid USB Drivers installed on it first before you can go ahead and do things like developing.

There can be numerous ways to get the USB Drivers installed on the computer for your device and the manufacturers usually try to get you to install something that is a program for many other things that have nothing to do with just installing the USB Drivers which is annoying because you don’t want to fill your computer up with programs that take up a lot of space and are of benefit to HTC but not yourself.
