How to Side Load Android Apps on Windows 11

YouTuber Shane Craig has a specialism in the intersection of Windows and mobile, resulting in a lot of interesting geeky videos, including the one embedded below, demonstrating how to sideload Android applications onto Windows 11 desktop, including the very interesting Aurora App Store.

Interesting stuff. Although we don't cover the Desktop much here, getting Android mobile applications going is very much relevant. Or you could, you know, link up your Samsung or Microsoft phone with the 'Your Phone' client, which achieves much the same result but in a more official and integrated way.
