I have searched online about installing an unknown apk.  They all tell me how to install an unknown app.  I go to the install unknown app page on my phone and lots of apps are listed.  But I do not have the app I just have the apk on my phone.  How do I install the app when my phone doesn't see my apk as an app?  You know what I mean?

You have to go to your downloads file and install from there

when I go to settings I get a list of apps  and this isn't in list, I assume because it is just a file.  as you can see install is greyed out.  I used to be able to just switch unknown on and off. sigh

You'll have to press settings and it should lead you to a screen where you'll have to turn on a switch to allow your phone to install unknown apk's
