Android Studio project structure

Android Studio project structure: Android Studio Essential Training

When you first create a project, the project assets are in the Project window. If you don't see the Project window, click on the Project tab on the left or move the cursor down to the lower left corner and choose Project. There are a few different views in the Project window. The default is called Android. It organizes the project assets by type. The AndroidManifest file, an XML file, is visible here under manifests. All of the Java classes are available under the "java" directory, and resources are available under "res". But this structure doesn't reflect the actual physical organization on disk. To see that, change to the scope Project. And now you'll see what's actually on your hard disk. The top-level project will show you the actual physical location and you can open that and see what else is in the project. The app tree has all the actual application assets. Under src for source, you'll find main, and under that java.
