Resize / scale android emulator (AVD)

Peace be upon you!


Resizing Android Virtual Device (AVD) emulator are problem that newbie found during debugging the android application. Sometimes, it took to much scale on your screen. I always hate when AVD emulator doesn't fit on the screen because I cant see the bottom of the AVD and it look silly.

# Solution :

To resize or scale the android emulator, you just need to insert additional command line argument inside run/debug configuration. You can refer from screenshot as below. Just add -scale 0.3 into that field. You also can change whatever suit with you screen and size that you prefer.
That all for now..see you later. Bye!
