    i went to the recovery screen with adb commands but when i try to reboot from there it doesnt work and says "error: device not found" and i have all the drivers on my computer
    also the power button is removed so i cant do the button combination
    So my question is that is there any way to control the recovery screen through a computer? Or a way to select any options through my computer?

    my phone is Samsung galaxy s3 GT-I9300
    jellybean 4.3
    sorry for my bad english

    So if you type the command prompt "adb devices" while in recovery, and in CMD, it doesn't find your device? I do believe you have to have USB debugging on, on your phone for this to work. Did you have that enabled?

    Yes, i did type adb devices and it didn't find my device when I am at the recovery mode.
    is there any way to navigate through the options in recovery mode through a computer?

    I will assume you have stock recovery, most stock recoveries are not adb functional, some that have the "update from/via adb" option are adb compatible.

    Try connecting a USB keyboard and or mouse and make the selection, use a 4 port USB hub that connects to micro USB or get a normal USB hub and use a USB to micro USB adapter to plug it into the phone, connect the keyboard or mouse to the USB hub then use a double ended USB cord to connect from the hub to your PC(this should allow you to use adb to boot to recovery with all the USBs plugged in at the same time).

    Or you can flash TWRP recovery and use recovery via touch to make selections.
