Once you have downloaded the SDK, you will find your images in:

$ANDROID_SDK/platforms/$PLATFORM/data/res/$DRAWABLE/ic_menu_moreoverflow*

where:

  • $ANDROID_SDK is wherever you installed your SDK
  • $PLATFORM is some platform directory (e.g., android-17)
  • $DRAWABLE is some major drawable directory (e.g., drawable-hdpi)

There are different versions of the image for light and dark themes and whether or not the button has the focus.
