You could try using it in parallel but generally it’s not recommended.

test execution tends to get unstable when you use your for other stuff, especially when the target device is an emulator.

Another option (if your system can handle it) would be to set up a local VM, open IDE and other programs there while runs on host machine.

Ideally though you should have dedicated machine(s) available and ready to execute your mobile at any time.
