How to start android emulator with expo, without starting android studio

Hello Expo community,
I’m having

Windows 10
Expo 4.1.3
Android Studio 4.1.2
Android Debug Bridge (ADB) 1.0.41

The problem I’m facing and driving me crazy and add more steps to my wonderful expo dev journey, is
I’m have to start android studio, then start emulator from there every time before I can run

expo start --android

otherwise expo start --android will not work

is there any way to make expo start --android start without having to even open android studio ?
