How To Sideload APK Files On Android From Windows The Easiest Way Possible

"The second, and perhaps least used method is to sideload the APK itself. This is a method that tends to only be used by Android power users – those who want to install apps that are not available on the Play Store. To sideload apps, users can download the installation file, or APK, and copy it across to their phone’s memory. Once there, it will need to be run, usually via a file browser. Apps can also be installed by downloading them on the phone, via an installed web browser. Neither option is particularly elegant, though.

That’s where the APK Installer tool comes in. Using the free app, Android fans can install apps onto an Android device using their Windows PC by dragging the APK into the tool’s designated window. After that, everything’s handled with no user interaction at all."
