Click on Edit just beside the Android SDK Location box

You'd be redirected to a window with a couple of components to install, and a new location automatically selected for where to install them. Go ahead and install, and take note of your new SDK location enter image description here

  • if nothing happens, change the location in SDK Component Setup (screen shot 2), then it will refresh and download
