where is the Android Studio executable


Where is the Android Studio executable file stored in the system?

I have it installed, but have unpinned it from the taskbar, which was the only shortcut I had. Since I can’t find it in File Explorer, I can’t load it.

I’ve tried the Start menu search function, and used File Explorer to search the entire install directory. The only thing left I can think of to do is reinstall it, but I don’t really want to do that, as it was working fine.

P.S. I wasn’t sure if this was more appropriate for SuperUser, since it’s not directly coding related, or SO, since I doubt the number of people on SuperUser with the answer.


You can find the executable file in bin folder where the android studio is installed, default location is


C:\Program Files\Android\Android Studio\bin\studio.exe

There is also studio64.exe in the same directory for 64-bit machines
