I have a web app that I need to tweak for Chrome on a tablet. I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab for testing. I'm trying to follow these famous instructions to use developer tools with Chrome for Android. I have downloaded and installed the Samsung USB driver from here, and it has sprayed 25 folders in C:\Program Files\SAMSUNG\USB Drivers. If there are further steps to identify and use the drivers in these folders, I haven't followed them.

My problem is that chrome:inspect is not finding my device. The device manager shows the device properly installed, but the driver tab says it's running a microsoft driver from 2006! All attempts to update the driver finish with "The best driver is already installed." I can browse the device in Windows explorer. What am I missing?

Chrome on my desktop: Version 36.0.1942.0 canary
Chrome on device: Version 34.0.1847.114
Galaxy Tab: GT-P7510
Android Version: 4.0.4

For me (developing on windows 8, visual studio 2013, xamarin 6, samsung S4 connected via USB ) chrome://inspect works, but only if I have adb running in the background. This was not mentioned in the documentation last time I checked.

Get android platform tools if you don't already have it. Then, from a command prompt in android-sdk/platform-tools > adb start-server.

You can do this as often as you like, and may need to do it every time you reconnect your phone, or wake your machine.
