  • In developer option press the on button & tick on sideloaded apps.
  • Now go to your file manager to find your apps where you can be stored
  • Click on App file (APPX / XAP) then in some seconds you can one popup window will be open where you need to click on install button and wait some minutes (it depends on your file size) to successfully install apps on your mobile.
