I was creating a flutter project, but I want to run my AVD in the android studio window itself, I already select the option in "Settings-> Tools-> Emulator" and check the option that says "Launch in a tool windows" but it still executes me regardless of the emulator. enter image description here

I've already done several unsuccessful searches, does anyone have any ideas?

enter image description here

---Updated----- Create a project in normal java and there if that window appears I think it is a problem in flutter or something similar.

Solution 1: Ganesh MB

In this doc.

  • Click File > Settings > Tools > Emulator (or Android Studio >
    Preferences > Tools > Emulator on macOS), then select Launch in a
    tool window and click OK.

In Your case:

  1. If the Emulator window didn't automatically appear, open it by clicking View > Tool Windows > Emulator.
  2. Start your virtual device using the AVD Manager or by targeting it when running your app.


  • AVD Manager > Actions Setting > Cool Boot Now

It directly forces start your emulator.

Finally! This is the solution Android Studio 4.1+ emulator sidebar?

Go to File->Project Structure->Modules and add Android Framework and Apply.

Automatically displays Emulator Menu in Right Panel!

Try File-> Project Structure-> Modules and add Android and Apply.

Solution 4: Eslam Sameh Ahmed

Go to File->Project Structure->Modules. Click on the + (Plus) icon on the top middle and add Android then OK.

Tested on Android Studio 2020.3.1 patch 4. Should work the same on other releases
