Very simply you open a command prompt and change to the folder where adb is located (tools or platform-tools, depending when you installed the SDK).

With USB Debugging enable on the phone and the phone plugged into the PC, type:

adb devices
Just to ensure the phone is recognized. It will be listed as a serial number

Then to install your .apk file type:

adb install <full path to .apk file>
It will push the app to your phone. When done, unmount the phone and it will be installed.
If the information is useful, Like the post, if the person was helpful, Thank the member.
