When you run the application please make sure your android device is connected to your PC using a USB cable, and USB debugging is turned on. Also, you might need to allow USB Debugging connection requests on your android device.
Then, you will see a window that shows your Android device’s screen. You can click and drag in this window to move the view around or scroll to zoom in and out on your device. You can also resize and maximize this window if necessary.
