    I have a rooted kindle fire hd 7in and I realized today that every time I side load games/download from google play store they are all installed to the APPS folder and not into the Games folder

    when side loading is there a way to install apps, games etc into the proper folders or do all side loaded apps just end up in the "apps" folder?


    am I side loading incorrectly by copying my apk's to the download folder and then using Es file explorer to find the files and install by pressing on the apk that I moved to the download folder?

    thanks!

    As far as im concerned all side loaded apps end up in "/data/app/" and will not show up in the games category in he KFHD launcher unless you downloaded a game from the amazon appstore. Although when downloading a game from the amazon appstore, it still ends up in "/data/app/".
