Android Studio how to create AVD?

One very irritating thing about Android Studio is that you have to create a
project before you can launch a simulator. So when you open Android Studio,
and get the welcome dialog, just start a new project with any old settings.

Once you've done that you can choose Tools > Android > AVD Manager and
create a device. You'll need to choose something with armeabi architecture,
not x86, when you create the device. Once it has booted up you should see
it in the target list.
