How to install .apk file thru USB?

I come from WM. I am new to Android.

I have done some research on installing .apk file. (Apparently still not clear!). I didnt download it from the Market.

One is installing SDK with Netbeans? OK, I am doing this.

Then I read somewhere just download to a microSD card and install a file explorer for Android.

Is there a FAQ on this?

Thanks for helping.

Re: How to install .apk file thru USB?

First, you need to install the USB driver from your phone manufacturer, like LG, HTC for your Android phone.

Then I did this and I copy from somewhere:

1. Download the app.
2. Transfer the app to your phone and place in a folder you will remember placing it in on your SD Card (Skip this step if using you Android to download).
3. Go to the Market (on your Android) and search for Astro.
4. Download Astro File Manager (its free).
5. Once installed open Astro.
6. Go to the folder you put the application in (if you downloaded from you Android it will be the folder call "download" or "downloads").
7. Click the app once (a Pop Up should appear) and choose open app manager (or words to that effect).
8. Click install once (you may get a Pop Up saying its blocked from installing just go to the settings and check the "Unknown Applications").

If this is a repeat, MJ says "Whos bad". And I said "I am bad".
